The two suspects behind a cigarette theft at this 7-Eleven store in Kew Gardens.

Cops have released video of two bandits who recently walked into a Kew Gardens convenience store and stole thousands of dollars in cigarettes.

The theft took place at 4:15 a.m. on Nov. 13 at the 7-Eleven store located at 81-64 Lefferts Blvd.

According to law enforcement sources, one of the suspects acted as a lookout while the other grabbed a bin containing $3,000 in cigarettes from behind the counter. They managed to elude a store employee; while police said the clerk was not injured, they could not explain where the worker was at the time of the incident.

After grabbing hold of the cigarettes, police said, the thieves fled the scene in an unknown direction. The 102nd Precinct responded to the reported theft.

The NYPD described both perpetrators as black men with dark complexions between 19 and 25 years of age. One of the suspects wore a black shirt, while the other was last seen wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and a black jacket.

 

Anyone with information regarding the suspects’ whereabouts is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS (for Spanish, dial 888-57-PISTA), visit their website or send a text message to 274637 (CRIMES), then enter TIP577. All calls and messages are kept confidential.
