The crimes have occurred in various neighborhoods in Queens, the New York Police Department said. Authorities said the suspect had stolen thousands of dollars in cash, along with jewelry and other items. 


The first burglary occurred over a year ago, on Jan. 26, 2023, with the most recent occurring March 5, the NYPD said. In all cases, he entered the homes through a window, police said.
