The individual pictured is wanted for grand larceny at a CubeSmart storage facility in Ridgewood.

Police need your help in finding a man who worked with other crooks to break into numerous lockers at a Ridgewood storage facility early on New Year’s Day.

The NYPD released on Jan. 9 images of the suspect connected to what police described as grand larcenies that occurred on Jan. 1 inside the Cube Smart storage facility at 1060 Wyckoff Ave.

Based on reports from the victims and an ensuing investigation, police determined that the crooks got in at 6:30 a.m. on Jan. 1, gaining entry by forcing open the side entrance to the building. Once inside, authorities said, the bandits broke the latches to several storage units and stole a significant amount of property.

Four victims reported missing property to police in the following days. A 32-year-old female victim reported two missing laptop computers. A 67-year-old female victim reported a television and jewelry missing from her unit.

A 47-year-old female victim told police that a scooter, electronics and fishing equipment were missing, while a 55-year-old male victim reported the loss of numerous power tools and clothing.

When contacted by QNS, Cube Smart declined to comment on the incident.

Police described the suspect as a Hispanic man with eyeglasses who was last seen wearing a black coat and dark-colored baseball cap with white NY lettering on its front.

The other two individuals were both described as male, though no other physical details were available, police said.


Anyone with information regarding the grand larceny pattern 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.

Editor’s note: A previous version included information about a residential grand larceny that was erroneously included in a police report about the storage facility thefts. We regret any confusion which may have resulted.
