A trio of burglars has been roaming the streets of Williamsburg this month, and law enforcement officials said Wednesday they need help identifying them. 

The first robbery took place on Aug. 6, when an unknown individual threw a rock through a window of a storefront at 366 Bedford Ave. at approximately 1:22 a.m. The thief then entered the store and removed property.

About a week later, the suspect returned to the same storefront with two buddies at around 6:50 a.m. and once again broke the glass. The group then slipped into the shop and removed even more goods before fleeing the scene.

The third and final robbery — believed to be perpetrated by the same three alleged thieves — occurred on Aug. 18, when they shattered the glass storefront of 265 Bedford Ave. with a hammer around 5 a.m., stole a host of items, and disappeared into the night. 

No injuries have been reported at any of these incidents and police are pursuing three individuals they believe are connected to the crimes. 

Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
