Lose your illusion: Thieves steal ‘magic props’ from W’burg apartment lobby
Have you seen this guy?: Cops say this guy, shown hauling a package out of a Williamsburg lobby, is part of a scheming duo that has robbed three apartment buildings in the last few weeks.

Two thieves pilfered a bunch of packages from the lobbies of Williamsburg apartment buildings last month — and they have walked away with some bizarre loot, police say.

The male and female duo began their spree on Oct. 19, when they walked into a Woodpoint Road apartment building and walked out with a queen sized bed frame some time between noon and 3 pm, authorities said.

The crooks then pried open the door to a Maspeth Avenue building on Oct. 22 at 2:07 pm and ran off with a package of green tea and two “magic props,” according to a police report. A police spokeswoman could not elaborate on what specific magic props the pair looted.

The bandits then entered a Kingsland Avenue lobby after a tenant buzzed them in between 8:30 am and 11:45 pm and ran off with a package of clothing and home goods.

Authorities are now on the lookout for the duo, and have released surveillance footage of one of the suspects.

Police ask anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577–8477, submit their tips at www.nypdcrimestoppers.com, or text tips to 274637 then enter TIP577. All calls are strictly confidential.
