NEW YORK (AP) - Police say they’ve arrested a man in a three-month string of thefts in Manhattan than netted a dozen laptop computers, cash and even a bottle of bourbon.

Police say officers arrested Darnell Lawson early Friday as he tried breaking into a midtown building.

The 50-year-old Manhattan man is charged in connection with 11 burglaries in April, May and June. He’s also facing attempted burglary and trespass charges.

Police say the thefts all happened after closing at businesses between 23rd and 38th streets, including some near the Empire State Building.

Police say each incident involved a suspect wearing a “Brooklyn” ball cap forcibly entering businesses in the technology and marketing fields and scooping up as many as five laptops at a time.

Information on Lawson’s lawyer wasn’t immediately available.
