Cops are asking the public to help identify and locate a trio of crooks who burglarized a home in Maspeth earlier this month.

According to police, the caper took place between the hours of 7:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 6 — with the 104th Precinct narrowing the time of occurrence to approximately 4 p.m.


Authorities said the victim left the residence on 72nd Street in the morning and returned home later that day to find that the three burglars gained entry to the house through a rear window, which was closed but not locked.

All of the bedrooms and the bathroom were found to be ransacked, and $1,500 worth of jewelry was stolen, law enforcement agents reported.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact Detective Jae Moon of the 104th Precinct Detective Squad at 718-386-2723, or the Detective Borough Queens North at 718-520-9200. All calls are kept confidential.
