EAST HARLEM— A thief removed an apartment’s AC unit and looted more than $16,000 in property from the home, police said.
The 39-year-old victim told police he arrived home on April 25 around 2 a.m. to find his apartment near East 138th Street and Fifth Avenue ransacked and several valuables missing.
He noticed that the air-conditioning unit in his window had been pushed out of his window, which is how police believe the thief entered, the NYPD said.
The items swiped included a Fossil wristwatch, two iPhone 6s, a Samsung laptop and an Extron Fiber Optic Test Set, which is used to test fiber-optic cabling and can sell for more than $4,000, according to online listings.
There had been no arrests as of Friday.
