A Metro PCS employee gave chase as the 52-year-old thief ducked into a nearby Q train station and boarded a train in northern direction.
But during the run by metro, the bandit fell from the train and was crushed under it.
About an hour later, a second thief grabbed a beer out of a freight train in Hunts Point, law-enforcement sources said.
