Cops are looking for a man (inset) who they've linked to a series of Bayside burglaries

Cops are looking to question a stylish suspect that they have connected to a recent Bayside burglary pattern.

Between Nov. 4 and 29, the perpetrator broke into multiple homes in the Bayside Hills section of the neighborhood, according to authorities at the 111th Precinct. The burglaries were all committed during the daytime hours.

The suspect is known to enter residences through a rear door or window and flee the premises with jewelry and cash, cops said.

The perpetrator is described by authorities as a male, 5 foot 11 inches and 180 pounds. He was last seen in a black suit, light-colored shirt and black shoes carrying a black umbrella.

According to the precinct’s commanding officer, Inspector William McBride, burglaries in the command have been the “fly in the ointment” to otherwise low crimes numbers. In the last 28 days, the precinct has had 28 reported burglaries: double the number for the same 28-day period in 2016.

At the precinct’s Community Council meeting on Dec. 6, McBride promised increased foot, mounted and helicopter patrols in areas of the command being targeted.

Authorities are encouraging homeowners to secure windows and doors on all floors, illuminate rear and side areas and secure all ladders, patio furniture and tools so they are not accessible to potential thieves.

Residents are also asked not to hide valuables such as cash or jewelry in their bedrooms and, if possible, install a house burglary alarm.

Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 888-57-PISTA (74782). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website or by texting their tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then enter TIP577. All calls and messages are kept confidential.

Those with information can also contact 111th Precinct Detective Stephen McCainjohn at 718-279-5282.
