Cops monitoring streets for computer-screen crook

Cops are looking for a man who they say broke into a Roebling Street apartment earlier this month and made off with several credit cards and a computer screen, according to a report.

The crook allegedly broke the lock on the apartment’s front door at around 9:15 am on July 14, then went inside and swiped the cards and a 27-inch Apple computer monitor before fleeing the building, cops said.

Authorities say the suspect was wearing a long-sleeved white shirt, black shorts, a white hat, and black Nike sneakers when he plundered the pad.

Police ask anyone with information about the incident to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577–8477. The public can also submit tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website at www.nypdcrimestoppers.com or by texting tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then entering TIP577.
