The police are looking for a suspect who has been smashing security cameras at 7-train stations in Sunnyside over the past month.

The individual is allegedly responsible for damaging nine cameras in three separate incidents in recent weeks. The total property damage, according to police, is valued at about $3,000.

The first incident took place on Monday, June 27, at around 2:10 p.m. on the Flushing-bound platform at the 40 Street-Lowery Street train station. The suspect allegedly damaged four cameras before fleeing in an unknown direction.

The suspect, about 15 minutes later, then damaged three security cameras on the Flushing-bound platform at the 46 Street-Bliss Street train station, police said. The individual then fled in an unknown direction.

Police said that the individual reoffended again last week and damaged two security cameras on the Flushing-bound platform at the 40 Street-Lowery Street train station. The incident reportedly took place on Tuesday, July 12 at around 2:05 p.m.

The police released photos of the suspect Tuesday.

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