Police are searching for a man who allegedly broke into an Astoria apartment building last week and stole a number of packages.

The suspect gained entry to 23-24 Broadway on Jan. 12 at around 3:25 a.m. by shattering the front glass door of the building and breaking the door handle.

Once inside, the thief stole three packages belonging to tenants and then fled the scene in an unknown direction, police said.

The alleged burglar also targeted another apartment building in the area just minutes prior to the theft–although without success. He tried to break into 21-34 Broadway but failed and therefore was unable to steal any property, police said.

The suspect is described as dark-skinned and around 5 feet 7 inches tall. He was last seen wearing a black and white hoody, dark pants, white and gray sneakers and a light-colored face mask

Police released video footage of the suspect breaking the glass door at the location where he allegedly stole the packages.

Anyone with information in regard 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). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the CrimeStoppers website at WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM, or on Twitter @ NYPDTips.
