Police are searching for two suspects wanted in connection with a string of commercial burglaries that occurred in Richmond Hill and Jamaica last summer.

The men, caught on surveillance video during one of the break-ins, were originally sought in three of the heists, but police now say they are wanted in several others.

The first occurred at 11 p.m. on Aug. 8 at a convenience store at 137-38 Jamaica Ave. in Jamaica. The suspects fled with an undisclosed amount of cash.

The second robbery occurred at 177-16 Liberty Ave. in Jamaica at 9 p.m. on Aug. 19. The suspects removed $30 from the cash register in that incident.

On Friday, August 30 at 12:03 a.m., police say the two suspects struck a restaurant at 109-18 Jamiaca Ave. in Richmond Hill, leaving with approximately $4,580 in cash, some scratch-off lottery tickets and an undetermined amount of cash that was allegedly removed from the eatery’s ATM machine

About 24 hours later on Aug. 31 at around 12:30 a.m., the suspects allegedly removed an unknown amount of money, box of Corona beer, 12 boxes of cigarettes, and a box of Red Bull from the Richmond Hill Deli at 123-07 Jamaica Ave. in Richmond Hill.

Police say the same suspects later struck two more times on Sept. 10.

The first occurred at 11 p.m. at Darbar’s Chicken and Ribs at 126-09 Liberty Ave. in Richmond Hill. There the suspects allegedly stole approximately $1,400 . They struck again at 11:30 p.m. at El Cran Canario Restaurant at 111-17 Jamaica Ave., where they allegedly took approximately $500 from the register, and roughly $1,000 from an ATM machine there.

Last September, police had originally identified the suspects as the men wanted in the Aug. 24, Aug. 31 and second Sept. 10 burglaries.

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.
