The police released details about two different burglaries that occurred last month in Brooklyn's 94th Precinct—and in both cases, prowlers entered by apartment windows.
The first burglary took place on Williamsburg's northside, near Herbert Street and Kingsland Avenue on July 19th, at 12:30 p.m. Police say that the suspect "entered a first floor apartment by pushing in the air conditioner that was in a window and then climbed in the apartment. Once inside, the suspect removed an Apple MacBook Pro and cash and then fled through the front door." Police shared a photograph of the suspect (top right).
The second took place blocks away at 3:31 a.m. on July 24th, at a first floor apartment near Diamond and Newell Streets. Police say the suspect entered through the front bedroom window and then "removed 2 laptop computers and 2 cellphones." The police released a "photo of the suspect taken from inside Farmers in the Deli, located at 541 Myrtle Avenue, is attached. The suspect used an app on the victim's cellphone to purchase food at the location."
