A man broke into Barclays Center through a side door and helped himself to a handful of Apple iPads and an unopened bottle of Johnnie Walker Blue scotch whiskey on Sunday, police said.

The Bluetooth-toting burglar broke into the massive sports arena through a door on Dean Street on Oct. 27 just before 5 a.m. Police say he snatched up three iPads and the premium scotch, which retails for approximately $200. He left on foot, heading north on Flatbush Avenue.

Police released a photo of the suspect.
