Police are asking for the public’s help in identifying a man they say stole an array of electronics from various production companies and co-working spaces in Brooklyn dating back to April.
The suspect — described as a black man around 30 years old — began his string of thefts on April 1 at 203 Meserole Ave. when a 28-year-old victim went out to move his car, according to authorities. When the victim returned to his office at Universal Cable Production, he found that his laptop had been taken.
A week later the suspect struck again just a few blocks away at 300 North Henry St. when he entered a dressing room though a rear door and stole an Apple charger and laptop, police said.
The following month on May 24, the suspect entered Broadway Stages at 44 Eagle St. and took an iPhone 6, which belonged to a 31-year-old woman who had left the phone unattended on a table, according to cops.
On May 30 the suspect entered 61 Greenpoint Ave. and stole a Cannon camera, iPad and MacBook Pro from a desk bench inside an unlocked room, police said.
The thefts continued in June with the suspect entering the co-working space called The Yard at 33 Nassau Ave. on June 2 and took a MacBook air laptop from a desk cubicle, cops said.
The following night the man allegedly went into The Eye Production at 196 Diamond St. and stole a woman’s wallet that contained credit cards and an undetermined amount of cash.
On June 15 the suspect went into Broadway Stages at 359 Kingsland Ave. and took a MacBook from a 32-year-old employee’s office.
