Police released a video Wednesday night of a suspect who swiped jewelry and other items from five Ozone Park homes in a series of recent burglaries.
All of the burglaries took place within the confines of the 106th Precinct – the NYPD did not disclose the exact location where each break-in occurred.
According to authorities, the first burglary took place at 11 p.m. on May 9, when the suspect entered a home through a rear window and removed jewelry and cash. The crook reportedly struck again in the neighborhood the following evening on May 10.
The third incident occurred at an unknown time on May 14, when the suspect entered a home through a rear window and stole jewelry, police said.
Jewelry, ceramics and car keys were stolen from another Ozone Park home burglarized at 12:20 p.m. on May 20, according to authorities. In this caper, police said, the suspect entered through a side window.
The burglar struck once more on the morning of May 21, when the suspect- after entering through a rear door- stole jewelry and cash from another neighborhood residence.
