Pilfered Property From Jamaica Ave. Apartments
Officers at the 102nd Precinct are dealing with a rash of burglaries that appear to be part of a pattern, according to officials, with the most recent break-ins occurring earlier this month.
The perpetrator got into three residences within the precinct’s confines in the last month–the first Thursday, Apr. 24–and continued the spree Friday, May 2 and Tuesday, May 6. Each break-in occurred in the evening, between 8:50 and 11:30 p.m.
For all three burglaries, the suspect forced his way into several residential apartments, stealing items while no one was home.
Officers at the 102 Precinct are seeking the public’s assistance in identifying and locating the suspect believed to be responsible for all three break-ins.
The first incident occurred in the vicinity of Jamaica Avenue and 123rd Street, where the suspect entered and removed two watches, a necklace and earrings from inside of an apartment.
The next was near Jamaica Avenue and 108th Street, where the perpetrator removed $2,000, a wedding band and comic books, and the most recent happened up the street, near Jamaica Avenue and 113th Street, as the suspect broke-in and removed $1,000, a laptop computer, two watches and a Samsung tablet computer.
The police describe the suspect as a Hispanic male, that was last seen wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans and a dark colored baseball hat.
