Robber steals jewelry, cash from Flushing building

FLUSHING, Queens — Police are searching for the man accused of breaking into a Queens business earlier this month.

The first incident occurred on Aug. 11 at about 2 a.m. inside the 329 Services Corp. along 133-43 Roosevelt Ave. in Flushing.

An unidentified man gained entry through the rear window and removed costume jewelry and about $100 in cash from the 50-year-old male victim, police said.

Six days later, while the victim was home, he noticed through his camera that the same man returned to the location, according to police.
