According to police, at 2 a.m. on Aug. 11, an unknown man entered 329 Services Corp., located at 133-43 Roosevelt Ave., through a rear window. Once inside, the suspect stole the 50-year-old male victim’s costume jewelry and $100. The suspect then fled the scene through the window and went in an unknown direction.

Almost one week later on Aug. 17, authorities said, the suspect returned to the location at 3:12 a.m. The victim spotted the suspect on the security camera entering the location through the rear window. The suspect took $20 and then fled the scene on foot in an unknown direction.
