Police are tracking the footsteps of a thief who swiped six Fitbits from a Ditmas Park cellphone store on Dec. 1.

The crook took the half-dozen high-tech activity-tracking wristbands from a store on Flatbush Avenue, between Linden Boulevard and Martense Street, at 4:35 pm, cops say.

Authorities describe their suspect as a man of around 30 years old, 5-foot-9, and 185 pounds.

Police ask anyone with information about the man’s activity to call (800) 577–8477, submit tips at www.nypdcrimestoppers.com, or text 274637 followed by TIP577. All calls are strictly confidential.

Reach deputy editor Ruth Brown at rbrown@cnglocal.com or by calling (718) 260–8309. Follow her at twitter.com/rbbrown.
