Jet Ro jack
Two gun-toting thugs held up a pair of Jet Ro Cash and Carry employees on Sept. 13, taking an assortment of items left behind at the end of a busy shift.
The workers told police they spent all day making deliveries for Jet Ro, and when they returned at 11 pm, the distribution hub on Foster Avenue near E. 100th Street was closed.
The two decided to take the leftover items home for the night and were about to put them in their cars when the thieves flashed their weapons and ran off with the goods.
