Police from the 106th Precinct are searching for a robbery crew that appears to share proclivities for classic scotch and premium cigars operating in south Queens.
During the afternoon of Thursday, Feb. 9, the suspects allegedly entered a South Ozone Park home, located in the vicinity of 133rd Avenue and 128th Street, through an unlocked door at around 2:30 p.m. and stole copper pipes, a bottle of Johnny Walker Blue Label and 25 Ashton cigars, according to the NYPD.
The same group struck at noon on Saturday, Jan. 21, near Aqueduct Race Track in South Ozone Park when they entered a parking garage at 109-55 109th St. The perpetrators removed copper pipes valued at around $700, police said.
The NYPD on March 1 released surveillance video of the three men that captured them as they ransacked the garage in January. One of the suspects wore a white and blue baseball cap and a blue jacket over a gray hoodie. The second man wore a black hooded jacket over a red baseball cap and the third perp wore a blue hoodie with a PUMA logo and blue jeans.
A reward of up to $3,500 is being offered for information that leads to their arrest. Anyone with information is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS.
