Police are looking for a man who was allegedly involved in three break-ins in Flushing and Whitestone last month.
The man allegedly hit two homes in Flushing on Sept. 15 and a third in Whitestone on Sept. 22, police said.
He first got inside a home at 23-37 Whitestone Expy. at 9:15 p.m. on Sept. 15 by crawling through a back window. However, he fled without taking anything, according to police.
He crawled through a back window of a second home, at 25-25 147th St. in Flushing a few hours later around 11 p.m., but again left empty-handed, police said.
A week later, the suspect had more luck when he burglarized a home in Whitestone. The man climbed through a back window of a home at 147-24 20th Ave around 2:15 p.m. He ran off with jewelry worth approximately $1,500 and fled in a white SUV, police said.
Police described the suspect as male, about 20 to 25 years old, with a slim build.
Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
Black lives will matter when there is mutual respect. If you want to not be treated like a criminal or drug addict then stop being one. Bring back the old bail laws so that garbage like this isn’t arrested by breakfast and out by lunch.
I dont understand another crime in which I see a black man who was involved or directly responsible and people out there are demonstrating on their behalf. How stupid can people be?
Keep you windows locked when you are not home. Alot of desperate people out there that take advantage of honest hard working people. Protect your home and valuables. Great reason to support your second ammendment rights!!!
