Police are looking for a guy who they say took advantage of lax security in two Bushwick apartment buildings last month — swiping a cell phone through an open window from one, then pilfering packages from the lobby of another.
The canny crook first struck on July 3 at around 7:30 am, standing on a bucket at a building outside a building at Jefferson Street and Wilson Avenue reaching into the window of a guy’s unit to grab his phone, police said.
Then at around 6:45 pm on July 19, the same scoundrel got inside an apartment on Lawton Street between Broadway and Bushwick Avenue, and pinched multiple laptops and cash, according to a report.
On his way out, he picked up some packages that were sitting out in the lobby, cops said — going back several times for more, a security video shows.
Police describe their suspect as 18–25 years old, 5-foot-7, and 160 pounds.
