The NYPD released images of three men Thursday who allegedly stole thousands of dollars worth of tools from a construction site in Astoria last month.

Two of the suspects broke into a site at 25-15 36th St. — where a new four-story apartment building is going up — on Aug. 12 at around 5 p.m. while the third assailant waited outside in a getaway vehicle, according to police.
