NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- Police are looking for a serial burglar who has stolen $100,000 in jewels in Greenwich Village.

Police in the 6th Precinct have been working to catch the jewelry pilferer. Six times since January, the man has made his way into homes and grabbed any jewels he could find. He's walked off with a total of $100,000 including $50,000 worth of loot from one person who was asleep with the door open in the middle of the night.

"Just to have the nerve to go into somebody's house you don't know, and start creeping around and start looking for stuff. I mean what if it was an off-duty cop, or a wrestler or weightlifter," one man said.

Residents say they're taking greater care to lock their doors.
