The Q at Parkside

(for those for whom the Parkside Q is their hometrain)

News and Nonsense from the Brooklyn neighborhood of Lefferts and environs, or more specifically a neighborhood once known as Melrose Park. Sometimes called Lefferts Gardens. Or Prospect-Lefferts Gardens. Or PLG. Or North Flatbush. Or Caledonia (west of Ocean). Or West Pigtown. Across From Park Slope. Under Crown Heights. Near Drummer's Grove. The Side of the Park With the McDonalds. Jackie Robinson Town. Home of Lefferts Manor. West Wingate. Near Kings County Hospital. Or if you're coming from the airport in taxi, maybe just Flatbush is best.

Hapless Heist Creep Collared

When the cops nab their man, they like to tell us about it. From the 71st comes this great paragraph-long narrative of events this afternoon. Locals will recognize this corner as precisely one block from the 71st station house. I'm surprised the guy wasn't wearing a red jumpsuit. Those are "in" this season in the perp scene.

Today at approximately 3 PM a male walked into the Chase bank located at 1000 Nostrand Avenue and passed the teller a note demanding money. After the teller refused the male walked across the street to the Carver bank and verbally asked for money in a threatening manor. The bank teller handed over money and the male fled the bank. Chase and Carver bank both called 911 and where able to give a good description. The description was broadcasted and a patrol car spotted the male a few blocks away. The male was apprehended and all the money from Carver bank was recovered.   

Semi-interesting graphic below:

Dang. And it sounds like he was just starting to get good at it.

Does this "threatening manor" have anything to do with Lefferts Manor?

Cute babs, in a "manor" of speaking. Would love to see a bank within closer proximity to the Manor/PLG.

One of the reasons Carver is effectively bankrupt is its loose withdrawal policy. Tellers will gladly hand over all the money in the bank to anyone who asks for it.

What a klutz.

You're better off creating your own pyramid scheme than robbing a bank. Of course, you'll be caught and sent to prison and forced to pay back all the money you illegally obtained but at least your apprehension by the authorities wouldn't be as swift as it was with this idiot on Tuesday failed heist.
