The suspect removed a lock of the basement gate of Fabco Shoes located at 54-16 Myrtle Ave. just after 7:30 a.m.
Once inside, the man picked up an orange Fabco shopping bag and began to fill it with numerous bags and wallets of the store’s shelves, police said. He also took a cash register containing $65 in cash before taking off in an unknown direction.
The NYPD released surveillance video of the incident Wednesday that shows the suspect stuffing the orange tote bag with the merchandise. He has short hair and a beard and wore a blue T-shirt, dark shorts, and orange NIKE sneakers.
Anyone with information is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS.
