Police are still searching for a suspect believed to be involved in a widespread burglary pattern in southern Queens that has lasted for two months.

According to authorities, the crime spree involves 11 break-ins between the 102nd and 106th precincts and thousands of dollars in stolen cash and jewelry.

The first incident on July 22 between 12:01 a.m. and 7 a.m. was by far the most profitable when the suspect entered a residence near 84th Street and 133rd Avenue in Ozone Park through an unlocked door. Once inside, the thief swiped $8,000 from the home and fled the location, police said.

In the second attempt on Aug. 2 at approximately 3:45 a.m., the suspect gained entry to a residence near 83rd Street and 133rd Avenue through an open storm door but did not steal any property, according to authorities.

On Aug. 10 at approximately 5:15 a.m., the suspect failed to steal anything again after entering through an open side window of a residence near 88th Street and Jamaica Avenue in Woodhaven, law enforcement sources said.

The suspect did cash in again during the next break-in on Aug. 18 at approximately 5:30 a.m. The individual entered a home near 79th Street and Glenmore Avenue in Ozone Park through an unlocked kitchen window and stole $400, police said. A 21-year-old victim at the residence witnessed the crook leave the residence and flee on a bike southbound on 79th Street.

A few days later on Aug. 21 between 12:01 a.m. and 5 a.m., police said, the suspect entered through an open side window of a residence near 96th Street and 86th Avenue in Woodhaven and stole $500 before fleeing the location.

The suspect failed again on the next attempt on Aug. 25 at approximately 9:25 a.m. After entering through an open rear window at a residence near 89th Street and Atlantic Avenue, the suspect did not remove any property and fled the location, authorities said.

In the seventh incident of the spree, the suspect entered an open ground-floor window of a residence near 89th Street and 85th Road on Aug. 28 between 12:01 a.m. and 4:30 a.m. According to police, the suspect stole $1,500 worth of jewelry before fleeing the location.

The crook struck again on Sept. 1 between 2 a.m. and 8 a.m. at a residence near 84th Street and 108th Avenue in Ozone Park. After entering the home through an open side window, the thief removed $600 and fled the location, authorities said.

On Sept. 4 between 1:30 a.m. and 7 a.m., the suspect gained entry into another home near 86th Street and Pitkin Avenue through an open rear window and stole $100 before fleeing the location, according to police.

Nearly two weeks passed before the thief hit another home near 79th Street and Pitkin Avenue on Sept. 19 at approximately 4:40 a.m. The suspect entered through an open rear window, stole $180 and a credit card from a bag and fled the location southbound on 88th Street, law enforcement sources said.

In the last incident on Sept. 22 at approximately 6:30 a.m., the suspect entered an open rear window of a residence near 88th Street and Jamaica Avenue in Woodhaven. Once inside, the suspect was confronted by a 48-year-old male victim at the location and fled without any property, police said.

There were no injuries reported in the last incident, authorities said.

The suspect is described as a black male who was last seen wearing a blue hooded sweatshirt and headphones.

The photo provided by the NYPD was obtained from a store near Euclid Avenue and Belmont Avenue in Brooklyn, where the suspect is believed to have used the stolen credit card on Sept. 19 at approximately 5:27 a.m.

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).
