A Woodhaven supermarket was robbed last week in a brazen overnight heist and the suspect is accused of robbing six other stores around Queens.

According to NYPD sources, the suspect entered the Pioneer Supermarket at 90-01 Jamaica Ave. sometime around 11 p.m. last Thursday night. Around $1,000 in cash and approximately $600 worth of phone cards was stolen.
