Police are searching for a man they say is responsible for dozens of burglaries in Queens.

Police say the suspect is behind 25 break-ins in College Point since March.

Investigators say he enters through the front or rear of the houses and makes off with jewelry, electronics and cash.

Residents say they're nervous.

"We always worry about it, certainly. But there are usually people around. We have some one home all the time, so we feel fairly safe—but I always think about it, certainly," said one resident.

"It's scary. Now I have to make sure we lock everyday, every time we go out," another resident said.

He's described as being between 170 and 180 pounds and was last seen wearing a green-hooded sweatshirt with a zipper in the front.

Investigators say so far he's stolen $12,000 dollars in cash and $3,000 worth of foreign currency.
