Police have arrested a man who allegedly burglarized two Astoria warehouse units Tuesday.

Kenneth Chapman, 52, of the Bronx has been charged with burglary and criminal mischief, police said.

The suspect used a fire extinguisher to bust through sheet rocked walls of a 37-24 24th Street multi-unit warehouse on October 22, police said.

He then stuck his hand through the holes in the wall to unlock two warehouse unit doors, according to authorities.

Police say he stole “various household items” from inside at around 7:30 a.m.
