CORONA – Police from the 115th Precinct were searching for a man who gained entry to a Corona church last month by walking through a front door and proceeded to pry open a rear office inside, according to the NYPD. The individual attempted to fill a bag with items from the office at the Mount Horeb Church, located at 109-20 34th Ave., but fled with nothing when he heard a church worker, police say.

The suspect is described as a light-skinned Hispanic in his 30s. He was last seen wearing a light colored T-shirt with the letters “LB” on it, and a dark colored New Era baseball hat.

Anyone with information is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotlie at 1-800-577-TIPS.
