Police are the hunt for the prolific prowler responsible for nabbing $67,300 worth of loot amid six break-ins across brownstone Brooklyn. 

The burglar’s first suspected heist occurred in Park Slope on Dec. 3, when he broke the lock of a Seventh Avenue apartment near Lincoln Place at around 3:30 pm, before making off with a treasure trove of jewelry totaling $52,000, according to police. 

Two weeks later, the villain snagged $3,000 worth of goods from another Park Slope apartment on Fifth Avenue near Bergen Street at around 3 pm on Dec. 19, cops said. 

The pilferer struck another Park Slope apartment on Jan. 8, when he attempted to break the lock of a Park Place residence near Flatbush Avenue at around 8:45 am, before ultimately giving up and running off empty handed. 

But the scoundrel remained undeterred by his failed attempt and struck again two days later, breaking the lock of the door of a President Street apartment near Fifth Avenue at 12:10 pm and swiping a television, jewelry, and $300, cops said.

On Jan. 21, the pirate broke into a Carroll Gardens apartment near Smith and Douglas streets at 2:05 pm and lifted $2,000 worth of electronics, according to police. 

The serial thief’s most recently documented raid came on Jan. 27, when he broke into a residence near Seventh Avenue and Seventh Street and made off with $10,000 worth of jewelry. 

No arrests have yet been made, and the investigation remains ongoing.
