Police are searching for a female suspect wanted in connection to a recent burglary in Flushing that cost the victim thousands of dollars in valuables.

According to the 109th Precinct, the burglary occurred sometime between 2 and 10 p.m. on Feb. 1 in the vicinity of Roosevelt Avenue and Parsons Boulevard.

Law enforcement sources said a 53-year-old female resident returned home that evening to find the front door open. Once she entered her room, she discovered that it had been ransacked, and that a window leading to the fire escape was left open.

Police determined that the suspect stole four rings, a bracelet, two necklaces, two credit cards and personal papers. The loot had a combined value of $4,480.

During their investigation, the NYPD learned that the suspect used one of the stolen credit cards to make a purchase. Cops obtained security camera footage from the store where it was used and caught images of the perpetrator.

The 109th Precinct then tweeted these images on Feb. 27, hoping that the public will help them find her.
