Authorities in New York said a burglar posing as an Amazon worker has committed at least 9 apartment break-ins and stolen over $35K in cash, jewelry, and other property. According to FOX 5 NY, the suspect, who is yet to be apprehended, committed the crimes in Sunnyside, Astoria, and Long Island City.

Estrla Islas, a 35-year-old single mother, is one of his victims. She said the burglar gained access to her Sunnyside home by passing through her window before searching her drawers and closets. 

“He took almost like $9,000,” Islas said. “$9,000 in cash.” She also said she had put that money aside for her 12-year-old daughter.

Authorities said the suspect committed the crimes between January and March. 

Not too long ago, an Amazon driver in Georgia lost his job following an accusation from a customer that he attempted to steal their family dog. Terrika Currence from Henry County, suburban Atlanta, reported last month that her daughter saw the driver luring their red nose pitbull into his delivery truck.

The incident was captured on video, prompting Currence to speak out, stating, “as I opened the door to put the package in the house, and the dog food, my daughter screams and says, ‘The Amazon guy stole our puppy!’”.

She quickly confronted the driver and filmed her dog inside the vehicle. In the video, she can be heard angrily exclaiming, “F—g Amazon done took my f—g dog out my f—g yard!” She then opened the truck’s rear door and was surprised to find her pet inside, according to the New York Post.
