The thief plundered the items shortly after 5 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 12, from the FDNY Engine 71/Ladder 55 station in Melrose, according to cops.

The suspect entered the station from an "open gate" and made off with the gear on foot, undetected, police said.

The NYPD released security footage of a suspect on Saturday they believe is holding the stolen wares. He is believed to be 30 to 40 years of age and was last seen wearing a black t-shirt, black pants, black sneakers and white face mask under his chin.

Anyone with information in regard to these incidents is asked to call the NYPD's Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
