Cops Put Brakes On Back Door Bandit
Police at the 114th Precinct last week arrested a 30-year-old Queens man who was sought in connection with a series of “back door” burglaries at residences in Astoria.
Cops say Bryan McCann was behind a one-man crime wave that began at 3 a.m. on June 6 when he swiped a wallet from a home on Crescent Street in Astoria.
McCann struck again at about 6 a.m. on June 6, when he stole two MetroCards and several other items from a home on 29th Street, police said.
Police said McCann struck for the last time at about 2:40 a.m. on June 10, when he broke into a home on 10th Street in Long Island City, where he made off with assorted electronic gear.
Cops dubbed McCann the “Back Door Bandit” after he slipped into the three homes using rear entrances – as the victims slept.
Police released a photo of McCann after he was captured on surveillance video fleeing one of the burglaries.
McCann, who was arrested on June 20, was charged with multiple counts of burglary and possession of burglars tools at his arraignment at Queens Criminal Court.
