Police have questions — and Radio Shack wants answers.

Cops are searching for three suspects believed to have robbed two Radio Shacks in Williamsburg and East Flatbush in March and April.

Investigators suspect the same crew of thieves held up a Graham Avenue Radio Shack in the 90th Precinct on March 30 at around 8:20 am, then stuck up another Radio Shack on 98th Street in the 67th Precinct at around 10:25 am on April 27.

In both robberies, the perps, who are believed to be in their early 20s, told workers they were armed, but didn’t flash any weapons.

The crooks collected thousands of dollars in laptops, cameras, Kindles, video game consoles, and headphones before fleeing in a red Dodge minivan.

One robber, who carried a duffel bag, wore a white button-down shirt, dark pants, and white latex gloves. Another wore a dark baseball cap, dark jacket, and khaki pants. And the third suspect wore a gray button-down shirt, black pants, black and white sneakers, according to cops, who obtained surveillance video of the robberies.

All three thieves wore sunglasses.

To report any information about the crimes, call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577–8477.
