On March 18, at around 10:15 p.m., the suspect was inside Key Food, located at 61-10 Queens Blvd., when he forced open the manager’s office door using a screwdriver, police said.

The thief then fled the scene thorough the loading dock at the back of the store, according to police.

Police have released photographs and video surveillance of the alleged burglar.

@Cg..Google “Extreme shoplifting this morning at CVS on 53rd and Lexington…” and watch the video. I am sure more is taking place and people are too scared to do anything about it.

When people begin to run out of money and food they are going to start resorting to desperate acts. The real consequences of that is going in right now have yet to be seen .

Police cars should be stationed around markets and pharmacies. I saw an empty police car outside of a CVS on Ditmars, Astoria. Inside the store two female officers were spending time chatting with each other, laughing and buying make up. I am not against the police but it was odd seeing them do that with their uniforms on, police car parked outside while i was running around sweating with a winter scarf around my nose and mouth looking for face masks and gloves. Btw i did not find any.
