He came, he saw, he shoplifted!

Cops are hunting for the thief who nabbed three chainsaws from a Sunset Park hardware store on April 26.

The crook was spotted via surveillance feed pushing a shopping cart through the Hamilton Avenue hardware purveyor near 19th Street at 10:40 a.m., when he snatched the high-priced power tools and ferried them to a waiting 2017 GMC, which he loaded with the help of another man, before fleeing.
