68th Precinct

Bay Ridge—Dyker Heights

Cup of d’oh!

A carjacker stole a man’s car from a Fifth Avenue donut shop parking lot on Feb. 5, police said.

The owner left his keys in the ignition and the car running while he ran in for coffee at the shop near 68th Street around 6:30 am, but when he came out he found his 2014 Ford was nowhere in sight, according to police.

Fast cash

A cat burglar raided a Fourth Avenue fast food joint’s register on Feb. 4, police said.

The owners locked up the eatery near 68th Street around 11:40 pm and returned the next morning to find someone had cleared out $2,683 from the register.

Spending spree

A fraudster opened a credit card in the name of a woman who lives on 14th Avenue back in December, and has run up a hefty bill since, police said.

The woman, who lives near 84th Street, reported the fraud this week, but damage had already been done. Whoever took out the phony plastic on Dec. 18 charged $1,373 before anyone caught on.
