Two looters ran off with NYPD cameras and other police equipment in central Brooklyn on May 7. 

According to authorities, the pirates drove up in a truck to a downed street pole near 1134 East New York Ave. at around 8 a.m., before detaching the cameras from the overturned pole. 

The perps then placed the cameras, along with other complementary equipment, into their truck and drove off eastbound on East New York Avenue. 

Police did not announce a possible motive for the unusual theft, but are looking for the men on suspicion of grand larceny.

No arrests have yet been made, and no injuries were reported, according to police.
