He cared enough to steal the very best.

Cops are searching for a thief who swiped more than $10,000 worth of watches from a Hallmark store in Whitestone.

 

The NYPD released on Wednesday, Oct. 5, images of the suspect who pilfered the gift and card shop located at 153-75 Cross Island Pkwy. at 10:30 a.m. on Sept. 28.

After entering the store, authorities said, the crook walked behind the counter and removed a key. He then opened a watch display case, removed 30 watches, placed them in a black backpack and walked out. The theft was later reported to the 109th Precinct.

Police described the suspect as a Hispanic male standing 5 foot 10 inches tall, weighing 180 pounds, with a medium complexion and short black hair. He was last seen wearing a dark blue baseball cap, a plaid shirt and blue jeans carrying a black backpack.

Photos of the suspect can be seen below.
