Dmitri Kuzkho is a former acrobat who committed a string of B&Es which Terry Jeffords took on as his first case in his former position as a detective as at the 65th Precinct.
After he is initially tracked down by Terry, the squad is led to his apartment, Terry is embarrased when it is discovered that he is now confined to a wheelchair as a result of a supposed trapeze accident. In the moment after seeing him in the wheelchair, Terry jumps to the conclusion that his cat is the burglar which leads to twenty years of ridicule from the rest of the 65th precinct.
When Jake and Terry reopen the case, Jake notices that he his wearing sneakers from 1995 (most likely Air Jordan XI's) that are muddy. Meaning that he could still walk because his supposed accident took place in 1994 and the photo was taken in 1996. He is caught by Terry after accidentally answering the door while out of his wheeler.
