July 20, 2020, By Michael Dorgan

Police are searching for a man who stole $20,000 worth of equipment and furniture from a building site in the Dutch Kills section of Long Island City last week.

Police said the suspect allegedly broke into a hotel construction site, located at 38-26 11 St., on July 11 between 5 a.m. and 11 p.m.

Once inside the burglar grabbed power tools and furniture worth around $20,000, police said.

Some of the items stolen included, power drills, a circular saw, a framing gun, an emergency light, a mini-refrigerator and rolling chairs, police said.

The suspect fled the scene on foot using a hand truck – which he also stole from the site – to transport the stolen goods, police said.

The NYPD released video of the suspect taken during the alleged incident.

Anyone with information in regard to the identity of this male is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
