Police are searching for a pair of robbers who broke into a Woodside home last week after a burglary spree throughout Queens beginning in January.
Police say that at around 7 p.m. on Feb. 12, two men broke into a home near 67th Street and 50th Avenue by forcing open the rear window.
Once the duo were inside the house, they stole pieces of jewelry belonging to a 62-year-old resident, along with $300 in cash, police say.
The incident follows nine prior burglaries through Jackson Heights and Maspeth, where the thieves have stolen more than $45,000 in cash and items like jewelry and clothing, according to police.
The suspects are described as male, and carrying backpacks and masks over their faces, police say. The two wore dark colored clothing at the time of the burglaries.
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.
You might as well get inspector clouseau to check it out
this happened on 69th Street —
This sounds fishy…. $45,000 thousand dollars!!!! why the heck are people keeping such high priced valuables & cash in your home?? And these jerks should have been caught by now!!!
this isn’t from just one house if you read the article it is all the robberies combined –
Because it’s their private home and people can/should keep whatever they choose to.
Never wrote that this happened to one houses. Shouldn’t assume. Obvious that it’s happening in all neighborhoods/homes!!!! So all should read themselves.
Police can’t figure out a pattern after 45k in stolen goods?
i bet they are from the Pan Am homeless shelter — no doubt about it –
The people at the Pan Am can’t be responsible, they lack the ambition.
