Cops are asking New Yorkers for help finding suspects who spent the summer stealing from Bushwick residents.
Police were notified of the first incident which occurred on July 13 at approximately 4:10 p.m. when an unknown individual entered a parking garage at 594 Bushwick Ave., removed a motorized scooter, and fled the scene.
On Aug. 8, a second burglary occurred when an unknown person — who cops believe is the same thief who stole the scooter — stepped into an Amazon delivery van outside of 86 George St. at around 2:30 p.m. and removed several packages, then ran off.
The next morning, the suspect entered another Amazon vehicle in front of 18 Jefferson St., grabbed some packages, and fled.
The fourth burglary occurred on Aug. 13 at around 10:30 a.m., when the suspect grabbed packages from Amazon vehicle parked outside of 123 Melrose St.
On Aug. 19, the fifth and final incident took place at about 4 p.m. when, following the same pattern, the suspect went into an Amazon van outside 143 Jefferson St., stole some bags and boxes, and disappeared.
Police believe the same suspects are tied to each of the incidents.
Anyone with information in regard to these incidents is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
