Cops are on the hunt for five suspects who looted 20 pairs of pants from an Urban Outfitters in Cobble Hill on March 26.
The crooks waltzed into the trendy clothing store on Atlantic Avenue one-by-one at 8 pm pretending to be customers, police said.
One or more bandits distracted the store clerk inside the retail franchise between Clinton and Court streets while the others swiped the stylish trousers and ran off.
No injuries were reported.
Four of the suspects were believed to be between the ages of 25 and 35, cops said. There is no information on the fifth man.
Police released grainy surveillance images of some of the crooks in the hope that the public could help identify them.
Anyone with information regarding this heist should call Crimestoppers at (800) 577-8477. All calls will be confidential.Reach reporter Natalie Musumeci at nmusumeci@
