BUSHWICK, Brooklyn (PIX11) — Two thieves stole large appliances from Brooklyn residential buildings in a burglary pattern that began last month, according to authorities.
In each burglary, the sticky-fingered suspects broke into a residential building and then stole large appliances: washers, dryers, refrigerators, and a television, according to the NYPD. Authorities have tallied at least five incidents spanning a little over two weeks with the first incident occurring on Dec. 23, 2022. The thieves hit the same residential building on Covert Street three times, stealing a total of one washing machine, two refrigerators, and a television, police said.
In the latest incident, the burglars broke into a residential building on Putnam Avenue around 10:30 a.m. on Jan. 8, according to the NYPD. They grabbed a refrigerator and a washer-dryer unit before running away, police said.
In each incident, there were no injuries reported, police said. The NYPD released photos of the suspects sought.
