Police need your help in finding a serial burglar who struck in Ridgewood four times since late October.

Law enforcement sources said the crook first struck at 2:22 a.m. on Oct. 24, when he climbed through an unlocked window of an apartment in the area of Fresh Pond Road and Madison Street.

Though he walked out of the apartment moments later empty-handed, authorities said, the bandit would take advantage of unsecured windows at three other locations.

At 4 p.m. on Oct. 27, police noted, the bandit entered a home in the area of Fresh Pond Road and Myrtle Avenue. He removed more than $9,500 in electronics and jewelry. That same day in the same area, he managed to enter another apartment and stole $1,000 in jewelry.

Finally, at 8 a.m. on Nov. 10, the perpetrator burglarized an apartment on Palmetto Street near Fresh Pond Road. He reportedly stole $620 in electronics and purses.

Each incident was reported to the 104th Precinct.

On Dec. 12, police released video footage of the perpetrator inside one of the apartments. He’s described as a white man between 20 and 30 years of age wearing all black clothing.

Anyone with information regarding the burglary pattern can call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS (for Spanish, dial 888-57-PISTA). You can also submit tips to the Crime Stoppers website or by texting 274637 (enter information, then the code TIP577). All calls and messages are kept confidential.
