Cops are looking for a duo who stole lottery tickets and cigarettes from a shop in Astoria.

According to police, at 12:30 a.m. on Sept. 10, two unknown men walked into the store located at 38-02 Broadway. Once inside, the suspects took an undetermined amount of scratch-off lottery tickets and left the store.

Deciding they didn’t take enough merchandise, the crooks then pushed their way back into the store past an employee and went behind the counter, grabbing packs of cigarettes before fleeing to parts unknown.

On Sept. 19, the 114th Precinct tweeted out this poster with photos of the suspects:

Anyone with information about the incident or the suspects’ whereabouts should call the 114th Precinct Detective Squad at 718-626-9311. All calls are kept confidential.
