Police are looking for a prolific perp in connection with 28 commercial burglaries, spanning from Downtown and Lower Manhattan to Midtown and the Upper East Side.
Cops said the burglaries in the pattern have occurred in the First, Sixth, Ninth, 10th, 13th and 19th Precincts, as well as the Midtown South and North Precints.
In the first incident, according to police, on Wed., Sept. 29, just after midnight, the suspect entered a storage area at Bar Joo, a Korean restaurant at 35 Union Square West, through a locked door. He removed an estimated $250 from a secured location and fled.
In another burglary attributed to the same guy, police said that on Oct. 14, around 11 a.m., he got into the McDonald’s on Sixth Ave. at 15th Street through the basement. He swiped multiple wallets containing credit cards from an employee breakroom, then proceeded to purchase food from the location using one of the stolen cards.
In the 28th incident in the burglary pattern, police said that on Sun., Jan. 9, around 3:30 p.m., the same suspect entered a storage area at the trendy BONDST restaurant, at 6 Bond St., again through a secured door. Once inside, he allegedly removed multiple credit cards from unsecured employee lockers.
Cops say the suspect is 30 to 40 years old and was last seen wearing all dark clothing.
Police released video and photos of the alleged suspect from the BONDST burglary.
