This burglar was willing to steal anything of value — including potted plants.

Cops released on Sunday images and video of a man responsible for breaking into two Forest Hills offices over the last several weeks.

Authorities said the first break-in took place at 11 p.m. on May 19 at H & L Counseling Services, located at 115-10 Queens Blvd.

According to police, the perpetrator entered the location and removed two laptop computers worth a combined $800 as well as $200 in cash.

On June 1 at 8 a.m., law enforcement sources said, the crook then visited the Greisner Dental Office located at 69-60 108th St. Police said he entered through an unlocked window and removed two potted plants. 

Both burglaries were reported to the 112th Precinct.

The video police released was obtained from the dental office and shows the burglar climbing through the window. Law enforcement agents described the suspect as a Hispanic male believed to be 25 years of age with a medium build and dark hair. He was last seen wearing a button-down dress shirt with a tie, slacks and black shoes. 

Anyone with information regarding the suspect’s whereabouts is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS, visit their website or send a text message to 274637 (CRIMES), then enter TIP577. All calls and messages are kept confidential.
