The NYPD is searching for two suspects wanted in four store break-ins in Richmond Hill and Woodhaven in the last month.

The first burglary occurred just after midnight on Aug. 24 at Tony’s Famous Pizza at 109-18 Jamaica Ave. Police say the suspects entered through the rear door and removed cash from the office and an ATM.

At 12:30 a.m. on Aug. 31, the suspects entered the Richmond Hill Deli at 123-07 Jamaica Ave., allegedly through the rear basement door and removed cash from another ATM. One of the suspects was caught on surveillance video.

The duo struck twice more last week, first at Liz Melis Grocery on 91st Avenue in Woodhaven at 10:30 p.m. on Sept. 9. They allegedly entered through a hole in the wall in an adjacent unoccupied commercial establishment and removed cash from an ATM and the register. Then on Sept. 10 at around 11:30 p.m., the suspects gained entry into El Cran Canario Restaurant located at 111-17 Jamaica Ave. through a rear window and removed cash from an ATM and the register.
