The suspect pictured above is wanted for burglary in the 104th Precinct.

Police are searching for the burglar who recently stole from a Maspeth nail salon and tried to break into a nearby grocery store on the same night.

The short-lived spree began on June 5 at approximately 7:30 p.m., police said, when the crook entered the nail salon on Grand Avenue near Borden Avenue through an unsecured window. Once inside, the suspect stole cash and merchandise worth approximately $2,000, said sources familiar with the investigation.

According to a tweet from the 104th Precinct, the perpetrator’s loot consisted of $400 in cash, two nail-drilling machines and 40 bottles of nail polish.

An hour later, the same suspect attempted to get inside a grocery store on the same block on Grand Avenue at approximately 8:30 p.m., police said. The individual tried to force open a secured door at the location, but was unsuccessful and fled on foot in an unknown direction, according to police.

No property was stolen from the second location, authorities said.

Cops described the suspect as a Hispanic male who was last seen wearing all dark clothing.

Surveillance photos and video depict the suspect before the incidents took place, police said.

Anyone with information in regard 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 or by texting their tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then enter TIP577. All calls and messages are kept confidential.
