Police in the Bronx are searching for an accused burglar who struck a home in the Kingsbridge section two weeks ago.

Investigators say the man broke into an apartment on Bailey Avenue around 3:30 p.m. on January 16.

He stole jewelry, cash and electronics from the unattended residence.

Then last Wednesday, police say he broke into a nearby apartment within walking distance on Heath Avenue.

The same type of items were removed. No one was injured as a result of these incidents.

The suspect is described as a Hispanic male in his 40s, approximately 5-foot-9 with a medium build.

In both burglaries, police say he was wearing a black hat, a black and gray jacket and black sneakers.

Anyone with information in regards to these incidents is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477).
