BOERUM HILL — A ghoul-loving bandit stole nearly $100 in Halloween decorations from a Boerum Hill yard, police said.

The spooky haul included a light-up pumpkin, a witch and a large spider.

The homeowner, a 66-year-old woman who lives on Sackett Street between Bond and Hoyt streets, was robbed overnight between Oct. 7 and 8, according to police.

The thief also took $20 in pumpkin lawn lights, a decorative skeleton and hanging ornaments, police said.

Other notable crime in this week's blotter at the 76th Precinct included the following from police sources:

More than $1,800 was stolen from a broken safe at a 16 Handles in Carroll Gardens Oct. 11.

The thief swiped the cash from the back office of the 349 Court St. eatery, which was open at the time.

A manager at 16 Handles did not have any further information on the theft.
