Call them rotten apples.

Police are hunting for the two masked malcontents who swiped more than $325,250 worth of Apple products from a Gravesend electronics retailer on Christmas Eve.

Surveillance footage authorities released on Wednesday shows the two balaclava-clad crooks break a lock on a basement door of the Avenue W B&H store near McDonald Avenue at 11:45 pm on Dec. 24, after they used ladders to climb down to the lower-level entrance, according to a Police Department spokeswoman.

And once inside, the louts bagged several iPads, iPhones, iPods, and Apple Watches, before loading them into a white Ford van and speeding off on McDonald Avenue towards Avenue U, authorities said.

The baddies stole their illicit Apple stash from B&H days before a group of four other thieves, whom cops are still searching for, swiped as many Apple Watches from the brand’s eponymous store in Fort Greene.

Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime stoppers website at or by texting their tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then enter TIP577.
