The police want your help to nail a man who burglarized the Khal Degel Israel Synagogue Community Center in Kew Gardens Hills three times.

He went through the house of worship’s unlocked front door at around 11:40 p.m. on June 14, cops said. Going into the kitchen, he took $100 in cash from it before taking off.

On the next night at 11 p.m., the burglar hit the 144-02 68 Drive synagogue again. This time, he took $200 from the kitchen after going in through the unlocked front door.

The perp apparently wasn’t satisfied with $300. On Friday, Sept. 21, he burglarized the place in the exact same fashion, but this time left with only $20.

Cops describe the crook as a Hispanic man between 25 and 30 years old who weighs around 150 pounds and is 5 feet, 6 inches tall. He’s got a slim build, a light complexion, short black hair and brown eyes, and he was last seen wearing white sneakers, black jeans and a black long-sleeve shirt.

Anyone with information about the suspect is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1 (800) 577-TIPS (8477) or 1 (888) 57-PISTA (74782) for Spanish speakers. The public also can submit tips by logging onto nypdcrimestoppers.com or by texting 274637 (CRIMES), then entering TIP577. All tips are strictly confidential.
