According to police, the suspect opened an unlocked gate and entered Mey Business — located at 136-31 41st Ave. — Sept. 27 around 8 p.m. and removed various retail clothing items worth an estimated value of approximately $2,000. He then fled the scene in an unknown direction, police said.

The suspect returned to the location Oct. 1 at 12:20 a.m. by forcing open a locked rear door, according to authorities. Once inside, he removed approximately $1,000 from a cash register and fled the location, but did not remove any property before fleeing in an unknown direction, police said.
