They didn’t have enough loot, so they went out and bought some more.

A man and woman broke into an East Elmhurst home last week to steal valuables and then used the victim’s credit cards to go on a shopping spree, police said.

 

On Oct. 27 at about 7:15 a.m., the duo burglarized a home near 31st Avenue and 71st Street. The home belonged to a 31-year-old man, according to police.

The suspects entered through a window, then removed a laptop, jewelry and a credit card, authorities noted.

Later that day, between 3 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., the burglars used the credit card to purchase liquor at Mar-Pat Liquors at 31-14 Farrington St. and merchandise at Nike and Target at the Sky View Center in Flushing.

The male suspect is described as a black male, 35 to 45 years old, standing at about 6 feet, 2 inches. He was last seen wearing a brown baseball cap and a black hooded sweatshirt.

The female suspect is in her 30s, stands at about 5 feet, 7 inches and has black hair. She was last seen wearing a pink scarf, a beige jacket, black sneakers and pink and grey sweatpants.

The duo was seen inside a blue Honda Accord.

Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 888-57-PISTA (74782). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website or by texting their tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then enter TIP577. All calls are strictly confidential.
