Suspect Wanted for String of Thefts in Midwood and Kensington Nabs $100,000 in Valuables, Cash, From Boro Park Home

By Matis Glenn

Police and Shomrim are searching for a man who allegedly broke into homes in several Jewish neighborhoods in Brooklyn; his largest haul being from a Boro Park home Tuesday afternoon, where cash and other items valued at around $100,000 were stolen.

The burglar entered a home in the vicinity of 17th Avenue in the 40’s at around 6 p.m. Surveillance footage showed the suspect darting towards the master bedroom, where he found jewelry, cash and other valuables. He then fled the scene, but not before leaving behind a hammer, crowbar, and a jacket.

When the family discovered the ransacked bedroom, they immediately called Shomrim and police.

Shomrim members combed through both the security footage taken at the scene, and nearby cameras to track down the suspect. An NYPD detective and an evidence collection team came to the house.

According to Shomrim’s research, the suspect is believed to be responsible for a break-in at Ditmas and East 3 Street just 30 minutes before the Boro Park burglary. In that house, the suspect stole a safe containing cash and jewelry.

He is also believed to have broken into several homes in Midwood over Shabbos.

The investigation is ongoing.
