Police are searching for the man believed to be behind at least 13 burglaries in Queens, and they're hoping surveillance photos will lead to an arrest.

The suspect reportedly targets apartment buildings with change machines in their basements.

He has hit three different buildings on Saunders Street in the 112th Precinct and several neighboring buildings on 69th Street.

The spree began back on April 18, with the most recent burglary happened early Monday morning.

The suspect enters the apartment buildings and forcibly removes cash from the change machines.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS (8477).
