No signal

Two delinquents stole a test phone from a cell store on Kings Highway on July 5.

The owner called the police around 1 pm after the two teens took the phone worth $1,000 from the store between Kings Highway and E. 34th Street at 1:45 p.m., before fleeing north on Utica Avenue.

The victim claimed he recognized one of the teenagers, saying she dropped off a resume earlier in the week, according to authorities.

Bad credit

A thief stole four credit cards from a parked car on Utica Avenue on July 1.

The victim told police that he parked his car near E. 34th Street at 3:50 p.m., and returned a few hours later to find his cards swiped.

The man’s bank later alerted him that the thief had racked up $600 in charges on his cards, cops said.

Gone clubbing

A sneak stole a man’s golf bag and clubs from a car he parked on E. 33 Street on July 2.

The thief looted the victim’s car between Avenue R and Quentin Road at 3:20 a.m., cops said.

Stolen goods

Cops arrested a man for stealing $1,000 worth of electrical wire from a hardware store on Avenue U on July 1.

The shoplifter allegedly put the wire in his cart and went to the self check out between East 55 Street and Avenue U, but he only scanned a soda before strolling out the store, cops said.

Your cell phone story is inaccurate. There is no store on Kings Highway and E. 34th Street.
