NYPD: Astoria apartment building burglarized twice in two days

Jan. 18, 2017 Staff Report

Police are searching for three suspects who stole packages and cash from the same Astoria apartment building twice last week.

Two men and a woman entered an apartment building on 30th Street around 3:53 p.m. last Tuesday, January 10 and took several packages from the lobby before leaving in a silver Nissan Pathfinder, according to police.

Two of the same suspects returned to the same building at 2:12 am Wednesday and went down to the laundry room in the basement, where they pried open a cash machine and stole an unknown amount of cash before fleeing in the same car again.

Police have released a video of the suspects and anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477).

I Love Astoria

I would like to know the exact address. Hard to figure out where it is. They all look so similar. How did they enter the building? Someone buzz them in? See them smiling and laughing in the elevator? They look like they are posing or acting. Strange. Door should be locked and have a mechanism to make it slam shut. Don’t ever buzz anyone in unless they call you on the phone or you can see them at the door via camera.


Right??? I would like to know exactly where. it might Have been 30th avenue- I heard of another store robbed recently in that area and that looks like a building and outside of 30th and 30th (ofc some of these old Astoria buildings look the same so idk lol)
