The NYPD is seeking the public’s assistance in locating two suspects who are wanted in connection with thefts of smartphones from stores in Ozone Park and Woodhaven.

On June 10 at around 2:30 p.m., the suspects entered the Placid Wireless store at 74-10 101 Ave. and removed an iPhone 4, iPhone 4s and Samsung Galaxy phone. Then on Friday at 3:42 p.m., they entered at Boost Mobile store at 80-10 Jamaica Ave., opened a closed shelf and removed an iPhone 5s and a Samsung Galaxy phone.

Police say the suspects, a black man about 5 feet, 6 inches tall with a dark complexion and a Hispanic man about 5 feet, 6 inches tall with black hair and a light complexion, enter the establishment and while one distracts the employee, the other removes property.

No one was injured in either incident.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1 (800) 577-TIPS (8477). The public can also submit tips by logging onto nypdcrimestoppers.com, or by texting 274637 (CRIMES), then entering TIP577. All tips are strictly confidential.

Welcome to the discussion.
