TWO BRIDGES — Cops are searching for the burglar caught on camera breaking into two offices in lower Manhattan in late March, the NYPD announced Wednesday.
Just before midnight on March 28, cameras recorded a man entering a dentist's office on the sixth floor of 98 East Broadway in Chinatown, police said. An audible alarm apparently spooked the crook, scaring him off before he snagged any loot.
But two days later the same man entered a realty office on the fifth floor of 59 East Broadway. This time, the burglar made off with two laptops, an iPad and an iPhone, then fled in an unknown direction.
The suspect appears to be in his 20s, about 5-feet-8, 175 pounds, with short black hair. He was wearing a red hooded sweatshirt.
Anyone with information about either burglary is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS (8477). Members of the public can also submit tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website www.nypdcrimestoppers.com, or by sending a text message to CRIMES (274637), then entering TIP577.
