A 39-year-old Sunset Park man has been sentenced to 12 years to life in prison after pleading guilty to a series of Queens and Brooklyn break-ins between November 2016 and April 2017.

According to Queens District Attorney Richard Brown, Paul Rodriguez of 58th Street pleaded guilty last month to three counts of second-degree attempted burglary, admitting to at least three attempts – two in Ridgewood, Queens and another in Bushwick.

During the attempted burglary in Brooklyn, Brown said, Rodriguez left behind a screwdriver, from which DNA recovered was a match for the Sunset Parker.

“Over the span of six months, the defendant brazenly busted through locked doors and windows to steal the property of others. Not only did he violate the sanctity of the victims’ homes, he caused damage that forced the occupants to dig into their pockets to secure their homes again,” said Brown. “Good police work led to the capture of this serial burglar, who has now been sentenced to a lengthy term of incarceration.”

Rodriguez was sentenced Thursday, June 14.
