Police are searching for the woman who snatched thousands of dollars worth of loot — including cash and expensive jewelry — from a man’s Middle Village residence earlier this month after he invited her into his home in the middle of the night on March 19.

Authorities said that the 37-year-old man met the woman, who is believed to be approximately 35 years old, earlier in the night and invited her back to his home near 75th Street and 67th Drive within the confines of the 104th Precinct, at approximately 3 a.m.

Once inside, the woman snatched approximately $1,500, a chain valued at approximately $2,500, a debit card, a designer jacket, and the victim’s passport before fleeing the scene in an unknown direction, police said.

The NYPD released a photo of the suspect on March 29. She has a light complexion and is approximately 5 feet, 5 inches tall and weighs 150 pounds, according to authorities.
