Police released a photo yesterday of a man wanted for breaking into four businesses near 37th Avenue and 82nd Street in recent months and stealing cash and laptops.

The first two burglaries took place on Saturday, May 12, although they were not discovered by employees until Monday, May 14.

The first incident allegedly took place at around 2 p.m. when the burglar broke in through a secure window and took a laptop, police said.

The burglar then broke into another nearby business at around 5:30 p.m. that same day. The suspect broke in through a secured door and made off with about $500, police say.

The burglar allegedly targeted two more businesses in the area during the early hours of July 16, but did not manage to take any property, police said.

In one of the attempts, the suspect tried to break in through the front door of an undisclosed address, but was unable to get inside the business.

The other attempt took place at around the same time that morning, police said. The burglar tried to break in through a secured window, but tripped a security alarm. He fled the scene without taking any property.

The suspect is described as a Hispanic man in his 20s. He was last seen wearing all dark clothing.

Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
