A thief made off with jewelry and other belongings totaling about $14,000 from a Flushing home in a burglary late last week, according to authorities.
Police say a man forced his way through the front door of a home near 31st Drive and Union Street just before 2 p.m. on Jan. 31, and stole the trove of items once inside.
It is unclear what, apart from jewelry, was stolen from the site.
The suspect is described as Hispanic and around 40 years of age. He was last seen wearing a gray jacket and hooded sweater, gray sweatpants and white sneakers.
The suspect can also be seen in surveillance video walking through the home and carrying a tote bag.
