PARK SLOPE — Cops nabbed a man who allegedly stole a $1,600 Louis Vuitton purse from a woman's Mercedes-Benz while she was getting gas.
When the 30-year-old victim went into the gas station at Douglass Street and Fourth Avenue to pay, the man snatched the expensive bag from the car's front seat.
Police arrested Kenroy John, 24, on grand larceny, petit larceny and criminal possession of stolen property charges.
Other notable crimes from this week's blotter at the 78th Precinct include the following, with details from police reports:
• A woman left her front bedroom window open on July 28 while she went out to a bar. She returned home, fell asleep, and woke up the next morning to find valuables missing from her apartment. The property stolen from the apartment, on Lincoln Place and Sixth Avenue, included a $2,000 Fender mandolin, a MacBook pro laptop, a bottle of Hudson whiskey, $5 in quarters, and a plant with purple flowers.
• More than $15,000 in equipment was swiped from a Degraw Street construction office on July 28. Burglars forced their way into the office and stole three Nikon cameras, lenses, light meters, a drill set, a Toshiba satellite laptop, and other valuables.
• A Park Slope man discovered a would-be burglar with a crack pipe in his building's basement recently, according to a police report. The 36-year-old man was at home on President Street and Fourth Avenue when he found a woman in his basement allegedly trying to steal valuables.
