The NYPD is seeking the public’s assistance in identifying and locating two men who are wanted in connection with more than two dozen car break-ins and thefts that took place in southeastern Queens between June and August. All of the 28 reported thefts were committed in the 105th or 113th precincts throughout Springfield Gardens and Jamaica.
The NYPD said the men have stolen an estimated $26,000 worth of electronics, cash, jewelry, and credit cards from vehicles.
A surveillance video, which can be seen online at qchron.com, shows one of the men entering a CVS drug store in Valley Stream, LI on July 22, where he allegedly used a stolen credit card. The two men were seen leaving that location together in a dark-colored minivan.
One suspect is described by police as a black male, between 20 and 25 years old, standing 5 feet, 8 inches to 5 feet, 10 inches tall and weighing approximately 240 pounds. He has brown eyes and is shown in surveillance photos to have a chin strap beard and a heavy build.
The second subject is also described as a black male between 20 and 25 years old, standing 5 feet, 8 inches to 5 feet, 10 inches in height. He weighs approximately 150 pounds and has black hair, brown eyes and a slim build. He was last seen wearing light-colored glasses.
