Detectives were looking for the burglar who stole nearly $10,000 worth of purses from a Long Island City store last week.

The NYPD released images of the bandit they believe is behind the Dec. 26 caper, which occurred at 8:15 p.m. at the store located at 47-09 30th St.

Police said the suspect busted through a sheet rock wall to get inside the store. He then removed designer handbags valued at $9,450 and fled the scene on foot in an unknown direction, according to authorities.

The incident was later reported to the 108th Precinct.

Police described the suspect as a man wearing a black jacket, a red shirt, black pants and black shoes.

Anyone with information regarding his whereabouts can call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS (for Spanish, dial 888-57-PISTA), visit the Crime Stoppers website, send a direct message on Twitter to @NYPDTips or text 274637 (CRIMES), followed by the code TIP577.
