A new iPhone crime wave has ridden into Brooklyn on two-wheels recently, and has become a more reliable occurrence than the phone's copious dropped calls. Bike-riding thieves have been snatching iPhones and other smart phones from unsuspecting Brooklynites in three different neighborhoods of the borough, according to Brooklyn Paper. At least three women and a man were targeted by the thieves in Park Slope, Prospect Heights and Boerum Hill in November; another three women were robbed in Park Slope in October.

Police are unsure whether this is the work of the same person, or several people; similar on-the-go snatchings have taken place in Brooklyn in fits and starts for the last year. Perhaps it's time for another undercover CSI-style sting operation?
