Over 250 Bottles of Stolen Cough Medicine and other Crimes from the 90th Precinct


A worker at a South 3rd Street Pharmacy realized in early August that a co-worker at the pharmacy had been steadily robbing the store for the past four months.

The perp, 42, continued to order bottles of Promathazine Codeine, starting in April, but never made a note of them in the store’s inventory.

The employee that reported the crime became aware of the theft while reviewing email receipts of the orders, which revealed that his co-worker had ordered 269 bottles valued at $2,642.

In addition the perp had also stolen $2,728 from the store debit card account.

When the employee confronted her with the information, she became agitated and fled, and has not returned to the store since.


Punched in the Face

A 25-year-old man was attacked while walking home on the night of August 17.

A group of four men approached him just after 10 p.m. along Boerum Street.

One of them yelled, “run your s**t.”

All four then began punching and kicking him about the face and head.

The perps then fled the scene. It is unclear what caused the perps to attack the victim.

The delivery guy’s phone was valued at $550, but he declined to make a statement at the precinct.


Bodega Brawl

A 29-year-old man was left with a laceration to the back of his neck after a brawl in front of a South 4th Street bodega in the early hours of August 18.

“B***h, give me your s**t,” one of the men shouted. He had a black knife in one hand.

The other perp then ruffled through the victim’s pockets, and grabbed her purse.

The goods in the purse were valued at close to $1,000.
