Police are looking for three men who allegedly robbed a Maspeth smoke shop at gunpoint Saturday and took off with thousands of dollars of merchandise and cash.
The three suspects entered the at 64-25 Grand Ave. store at around 1:30 p.m., with two of them displaying a gun as they approached an employee. They then zip-tied the employee, while removing about $1,800 from the cash register and taking approximately $6,500 in merchandise.
The men fled the store on foot and headed northbound on Grand Avenue.
The store employee did not sustain any injuries as a result of this incident, according to police.

The current administration has a great plan to drive the city into a hole. They’ll close down Rikers, put prisons in your neighborhood, allow the businesses to leave because of crime, allow garbage and graffiti and all forms of motorized vehicles on the sidewalk and violence toward the elderly.
People are desperate. I see people paying workers at pharmacies to hold onto baby formula for them. Its unfair to the poor.
Should not have these luxury ‘want’ items.
That’s why they’re poor.
No NYCHA building should have parking lots or garages.
Before the liberals here rip your post, the want items you reference are material goods ie: high end designer clothes, the latest smart phones, the latest smart TVs, etc. All of which flood NYCHA houses and poor neighborhoods.
Does your 1 year old really need Jordan sneakers when they hardly can even walk? And doesn’t WIC already cover for formula?
And why do NYCHA houses have surprisingly high end cars parked there?
According to the guy posting under “the poor”. The poor need to be punished
Great point, cars are a luxury item. You should be able to park yours for free though, right?
