Rego Pk. Pickpockets Wanted

The NYPD has released surveillance camera images of two suspects wanted for pickpocketing shoppers at several stores in Rego Park earlier this month. In the first incident, law enforcement sources said, a 63- year-old man was distracted by one of the crooks while the other bandit bumped into him and removed his wallet inside a shop on Junction Boulevard at around 4:30 p.m. on May 6. The following day, the pickpockets stole a wallet from a 34-year-old woman and swiped a purse belonging to a 43-year-old woman from a store on Queens Boulevard between 2:30 and 3:30 p.m. on May 7. Both incidents were reported to the 112th Precinct. One of the bandits is described by police as a Hispanic male in his 30s with black short straight hair with a dyed blond streak on one saide and a tattoo of the name “Rickey” on the side of his neck. Two Hispanic or African-American females, one in her late 30s and the other in her 40s with short black hair, are also wanted in connection with the grand larcenies. Persons with information regarding the pickpockets that could prove helpful are asked to contact Crime Stoppers by phone at 1- 800-577-TIPS, by text message to 274637 (enter information, then the code TIP577) or online at www.nypdcrimestoppers.com.
