The NYPD is searching for three people who broke into a car in Astoria earlier this month.

On Monday, March 8, around 2:40 a.m., two unidentified men and a woman broke into a 34-year-old woman’s unoccupied parked car, according to the NYPD.

In order to get inside, the trio smashed the front and rear passenger side windows, cops said.

The group grabbed over $1,100 worth of power tools from the car and fled on foot, heading northbound on 45th Street, according to the police.

Police said one of the men was last seen wearing a black hooded jacket, a light-colored shirt, blue jeans, black sneakers and eyeglasses. The other man was last seen wearing a black hat, a black jacket, brown pants and gray sneakers, and the woman was last seen wearing a gray coat with a fur-lined hood and gray boots.

No one was injured as a result of the burglary.
