Police from the 107th Precinct in Fresh Meadows are looking for two men who broke into a Briarwood home and made off with around $37,000 in cash and jewelry last month.

The two suspects climbed onto the second-floor balcony of a home near the intersection of Coolidge Avenue and 139th Street, one block south of the Jackie Robinson Parkway, at around 2 a.m. on Saturday, Jan. 21.

Once on the balcony at the rear of the home, the alleged burglars entered through an unlocked door and proceeded to remove approximately $9,000 in cash and $28,000 worth of jewelry, according to the NYPD.

The suspects made their way to the basement, where they used “burglar tools” to exit the house through a locked cellar door. The two men fled the location northbound on 82nd Avenue toward the Jackie Robinson Parkway, police said, adding that no one was home at the time of the incident so there were no injuries reported as a result of the heist.

The NYPD released surveillance images of the suspects wearing black face coverings. One wore a black Uber Eats baseball cap and a black jacket over a black hoodie, and he had a gray backpack. The other man wore a dark hooded winter jacket, a black baseball cap and clutched a yellow crowbar.

Anyone with information is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS.
