The New York Post reports http://bit.ly/QgcssM thieves struck at least three homes in the Breezy Point section of Queens.

One couple lost a $25,000 coin collection along with jewelry and watches.

The break-ins occurred Wednesday or Thursday when many residents were away for the holiday.

Robert Bainbridge says looters took $400 in two change jars. He says he's trying to repair his flooded home and the theft "adds insult to injury."

According to The Post, there were 14 home break-ins in Breezy Point from Nov. 12 to Nov. 18. There were none during the same period last year.
