Police are looking for a man who allegedly committed two burglaries in the Bronx a month apart, and in both cases claimed he was a law enforcement officer when his victims caught him in their homes.

First, on September 9th, a woman said she came home to her apartment, near Fuller Street and Seddon Street, to find the unidentified man putting jewelry into a bag. The man allegedly told her he was a police officer conducting an investigation. When the woman tried to get the bag back from the man, he fled the scene, making off with a bracelet, a chain and a necklace all valued at $2,800 in total.

On October 9th, the suspect struck again. This time, a man came back to his apartment, near West 262nd Street and Huxley Avenue, after walking his dog, and discovered the unidentified man in his bedroom. The victim says the man held up a two-way radio, claimed he was a DEA agent and that he was searching for drugs. The suspect stole four watches valued at $1,000 total, a bracelet worth $199 and ten dollars in cash before leaving the apartment.

The man is described as being between 40- and 45-years-old, 5'8" and 200 lbs with salt-and-pepper hair, and was last seen wearing a black rain jacket, black pants and black boots.

Anyone with information in regards 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).
