Police are looking for three suspects who slipped into a Whitestone residence earlier this week and drove off with three expensive cars while homeowners slept inside.

On Oct. 4 at approximately 5:30 a.m., three men entered a home in the vicinity of 168th Street and 14th Avenue through a rear glass door, an NYPD spokesperson said. There was no visible damage to the door.

As the victims slept inside, law enforcement sources said, the perpetrators removed three sets of car keys from the home. The perpetrators then went back outside and stole three vehicles: a 2011 black Mercedes Benz two-door, 2017 blue Mercedes Benz four-door and a 2019 white Ford Mustang two-door.

The incident was reported to the 109th Precinct.

Police have released surveillance stills of the suspects, which can be seen below.
