New York City Politician Robbed Twice on Same Day

Brooklyn City Councilman Stephen Levin got hit with a double dose of disaster over the weekend when he ended up the victim of two separate, nearly simultaneous crimes just a few miles apart.

Some guys have all the luck -- and then there's Brooklyn City Councilman Stephen Levin.

The Democrat got hit with a double dose of disaster over the weekend when he ended up the victim of two separate, nearly simultaneous crimes just a few miles apart.

A thief helped himself to Levin's parked 2000 Honda Civic in Greenpoint early Sunday morning -- while around the same time another crook was breaking into his district office in Boerum Hill.

"I'm hoping I've reached my quota for burglaries and thefts for the year," Levin told The Post yesterday.

Levin's weekend from hell began Sunday at around 5:40 a.m., when he got a call saying someone had been arrested for breaking into his district office on Atlantic Avenue.

Louis Adule, 22, of Georgia was nabbed in Levin's office allegedly trying to make off with a flat-screen TV and two computer monitors, a law-enforcement source said.

Adule allegedly used a potted plant at around 4:25 a.m. to smash the glass and get into the office -- and woke up a neighbor in the process, sources said.

The neighbor, Jerry Haggerty, said he immediately called cops, who were shocked to find the robber still in the office.

"They saw the guy inside and said, 'Holy s- - -! He's in there!' " Haggerty recalled.

Levin was immediately notified of the burglary and left his Greenpoint apartment to head to his office -- only to find that his car had been stolen.

"I spent the next couple of hours doing police reports," Levin said.
