The perp entered the business between Ocean Parkway and First Street around 8 pm and stole various electronics before making his getaway, according to cops.

Bank card heist

A thief used a woman’s stolen credit card to spend almost $400 at a Neptune Avenue drugstore on March 15.

The 38-year-old victim was at work on Sixth Street between Ocean Avenue and Fifth Lane at 2:30 pm when she received a call from her bank alerting her to suspicious activity on her account.

The perp made a $378.28 charge at the drugstore near W. Sixth Street, as well as a $21.79 charge at a Brighton Beach Avenue supermarket, said cops.

The victim then realized she was missing her wallet and immediately halted her account, according to police.

Wallet snatcher

A sneak thief stole a 70-year-old woman’s wallet from a Brighton Beach Avenue store on March 22.

Prime target

A looter stole a wallet from a car parked on 46th Street on March 17.

The victim told police he parked the vehicle between Shore Parkway and Cropsey Avenue and played soccer across the street with his son. The looter broke into the car and stole the wallet — which had $200 in it — around 2 pm, according to cops.
