Police were searching for a brazen burglary suspect they said hit 25 homes in College Point since March.

The suspect allegedly forced his way into multiple houses per day through front and back doors, mostly in broad daylight, and swiped jewelry, electronics and cash, according to cops.

In one break-in at the end of March, the man entered a house and stole $12,000 in cash and $3,000 in Chinese currency, the NYPD said.

Police described the suspect as an Asian man between 25 and 40 who weighs around 170 pounds.

The suspect was last seen wearing a green hooded sweatshirt with a zipper in the front, blue jeans, and blues sneakers, police said.

Those with information should contact NYPD’s Crimestoppers by calling 1-800-577-TIPS (8477), visiting its website or texting 274637 (CRIMES) and entering TIP577.

Reach reporter Alex Robinson by e-mail at or by phone at 718-260-4566.

Stole 3000 in Chinese currency?! That's a first! He probably lives in flushing somewhere among the other million Asians, I would start there first!

First of all why did the alleged victim have $12K plus Chines currency (interesting the writer does not consider this to be cash). Secondly, it is wonderful to see the alleged burglar assimilating into American society so well.
