The police are asking the public to help find and identify a man wanted in connection with two store-front burglaries that took place in Flushing and Sunnyside.

The first incident happened on Wednesday, Nov. 29, at about 2:30 a.m. at Veyta’s Bakery Café Restaurant on Roosevelt Avenue. According to police, the perpetrator gained entry into the store by lifting up the unsecured gate and walking through the front door. Once inside, the individual took approximately $950 in cash from the register.

The second burglary occurred on Saturday, Dec. 9, at about 2:43 a.m. at Priceless NY on Greenpoint Avenue. According to police, the suspect crawled through a small gap between the security gate and the ground to get inside. The individual then stole approximately $500 from the cash register.

Police said that the similarities in the way the perpetrator gained entry to each establishment and the hours at which they occurred led them to believe the same individual committed both burglaries.

Video from the first burglary can be seen below. The individual is described as a dark-skinned male and was last seen wearing dark-colored clothing.

Anyone with information in regards to these incidents 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 at WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM or by texting their tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then enter TIP577. All calls will remain confidential.
