STRAIGHT OUTTA BROOKLYN The "Police Blotter" column in the current edition of The Brooklyn Papers leads with the following notice:
A burglar removed property from a vehicle belonging to a Department of Homeland Security agent in Downtown Brooklyn on April 1.


The special agent, 33, told police he left the vehicle at 11:30 am, but when he returned at 1 pm, the passenger-side window was smashed.

Among the items stolen were an unsecured H & K magazine firearm loaded with bullets, a Homeland Security credit card and an address book containing the names of other agents, police said.
