A pair of thieves stole $50 in cash from a bodega along Greenpoint Avenue weeks ago, the police announced last night.

The two men broke the locks off the gates guarding Yogi Convenience, located at 41-11 Greenpoint Ave. at 2:49 a.m. on Feb. 1, police say.

Once the pair lifted the gate and went inside, they stole approximately $50 in cash from the register, according to police.

The two men then fled from the scene by a white four-door sedan, and headed north on 41st Street, police say. Surveillance video released by the NYPD shows the two suspects walking through the streets and later getting into the white car.

Police say the suspects dressed in all black clothing.

Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782). All calls are strictly confidential.

poor young men, need to feed their families and get some new kicks and could only get $50 bucks. its a shame


they rob a store for $50. hysterical! i cant stop laughing at these dumb as toast fools. but why would the store leave cash out like that? the cash should be put in a safe or taken by the owner and brought back the next day.


It’s going to get worse! Thanks to the hotels turned shelter. Those men in City View are walking to Sunnyside ALL THE TIME.


There has to be something to stop these increasing number of petty crimes, because petty crimes gradually turn into serious crimes when these are not stopped.


Burglary is not a petty crime. But “quality control” will knock this down to criminal trespass. Nope, no class D felony here. Crime is down.


Exactly. I understand it takes some time to get the video footage out to the public, but this is their job. I mean, it’s what they do.

As an accomplished legislator, law professor and media personality with broad experience in government and not-for-profit organizations, Met Council CEO and executive director David Greenfield is well aware of the power of words.
