Police are looking for men in connection with two burglaries in Greenpoint last month.

The first break-in took place at 12:30 pm on July 19, when the suspect pushed the air conditioner through the window of a first-floor apartment and climbed through, according to police. He proceeded to take a MacBook Pro computer and cash, then left through the front door, cops said.

The second burglary happened on July 24 at 3:30 am, officers stated. The guy snaked his way in through the ground-floor window of an abode near Diamond and Newell streets. He took two laptops and two cellphones, and went on to make a purchase using an app on one of the cellphones while at a bodega on Myrtle Avenue between Steuben Street and Emerson Place, per a report.

Police ask those with information about the incidents to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577–8477, go, or text-message tips to 274637 and enter “TIP577.”

Updated 10:17 pm, July 9, 2018: Inaccurate street reference fixed.

Reasonable discourse

Linda Stone from Greenpoint says:
Regarding the second break-in: There is no Lowell St in Greenpoint. Maybe you meant Newell St or perhaps Jewel St because Diamond is sandwiched between those two? Diamond St itself is only about 4 blocks long.
