NYPD captures suspected serial burglar on jewelry store roof
It’s a heist fit for the movies.
A daring Bronx thief took inspiration from “Million Impossible” to pilfer tens of thousands of dollars from a department store — using a rope to scale down from the roof, surveillance footage shows.
The clip, released Thursday morning by the NYPD, shows a man in a brown jacket making the crafty Tom Cruise-worthy entrance into the store in Fordham Heights around 12:25 a.m. on Dec. 23.
The video then shows the suspect and another man — who cops say also entered through the roof — creeping around inside the store on Grand Concourse near East 188th Street.
The duo eventually broke into a safe inside an office and took off with $35,000 in cash, police said.
Cops believe the same suspects also entered the store through the roof just after midnight Sept. 24 and removed $2,800 from a safe.
No one was hurt in either incident.
The heist recalls the commonly-spoofed scene in the first Mission Impossible film, where Tom Cruise’s character, Ethan Hunt, dangles by two cables from the roof to hack into a CIA computer.
