Cops are searching for two men who walked out of a Flushing business with thousands of dollars in stolen jewelry on Wednesday afternoon.

On June 27 at around 1:15 p.m., two unidentified suspects entered Flushing Jewelry and Pawn at 41-12A Main St. and forcibly opened a display case, law enforcement sources said.

The trio then removed 12 yellow gold chain necklaces and one gold chain pendant with a half carat diamond and fled the scene on foot in an unknown direction. Police estimated that the goods were valued at about $30,000.

The incident was reported to the 109th Precinct. On its Twitter page Wednesday night, the precinct posted a wanted flier that included images of the crooks.

Police described the perpetrators as two white or Hispanic men. In surveillance footage, the first man was seen wearing a polo shirt that says “GERMANY,” a New York Yankees cap and sunglasses. The second man wore a white polo shirt and black baseball cap.

Photos of the suspects can be seen below.
