NEW YORK (WABC) -- The NYPD has identified a man they want to question about a string of burglaries in Upper Manhattan.
Police say they want to question 40-year-old Luis Gonzalez in at least 14 burglaries.
The burglaries all took place in Washington Heights and Hamilton Heights and began back on September 4, 2011 with the most recent taking place on Thursday, March 8, 2012.
The suspect has stolen computers, cell phones and other electronics, along with clothing, jewelry, cash, rare coins, and cigarettes.
In all of the incidents, all of the apartment doors containing peepholes had been rubbed with petroleum jelly in an effort to obstruct the view.
There were no injuries reported.
The suspect was earlier described as a Hispanic man, age 50-60, with a dark complexion, close cut hair, clean shaven and carrying a can.
He wore a Yankees baseball cap and dark glasses.
Anyone with information in regards to any of the incidents is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477).
