The NYPD released on Thursday images of two men wanted in connection with a burglary pattern in three different Queens neighborhoods that started back in July.

Law enforcement sources said the first break-in occurred at about 4:35 p.m. on July 26 in the area of 81st Street and Broadway on the Elmhurst/Jackson Heights border. Police said the crooks entered an apartment and removed a laptop computer valued at $600.

A few hours later, authorities noted, the duo struck again in Elmhurst, hitting an apartment in the area of Woodside Avenue and 76th Street at 7:45 p.m. They smashed through an apartment door and removed a laptop computer valued at $300.

Both Elmhurst burglaries were reported to the 110th Precinct.

Less than a month later, police said, the burglars paid a visit to an apartment in the area of Astoria Boulevard and 27th Street in Astoria at 2:08 p.m. on Aug. 17. The crooks forcibly opened an door to get in and removed a laptop computer and jewelry worth a combined $2,739. The residents reported the burglary to the 114th Precinct.

Finally, the dubious duo broke into an apartment in the vicinity of 81st Street and 156th Avenue in Howard Beach at 3:07 p.m. on Sept. 5. They stole various jewelry items with an estimated value of $15,900 before fleeing the location. The incident was reported to the 106th Precinct.

Security cameras at the Howard Beach location caught images of the pair, whom police described as white males standing 5 foot 9 inches tall and weighing 160 pounds. One of the perpetrators appeared to be in his 30s, while his partner was in his 50s. They were both observed wearing dark baseball caps, gray shirts and dark pants.

Anyone with information regarding the suspects’ whereabouts is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS (for Spanish, dial 888-57-PISTA), visit their website or send a text message to 274637 (CRIMES), then enter TIP577. All calls and messages are kept confidential.
