Police are searching for a thief who swiped a GPS system and a dashboard camera from a car parked in a Ditmars driveway.

Cops said the suspect was captured on surveillance footage eyeing a white vehicle parked outside a home near Ditmars Boulevard and 21st Avenue at about 4 p.m. on April 14.

The suspect suddenly lunged toward the car, opened the unlocked passenger side door, grabbed the items and then fled in an unknown direction, police said.

The suspect is described as a white or Hispanic male, approximately 25-years-old, 5-feet, 9-inches tall and 160 pounds. He was wearing a blue hoodie, jeans, blue sneakers and a black baseball cap at the time of the robbery.
