Robbers on the loose
From the Village Voice:
This crew had a December armed robbery spree in Queens, hitting a mini-mart in Ozone Park on the 9th, a car care center in Bellerose on the 10th, a 7-11 in Kew Garden Hills on the 19th, an a grocery in Forest Hills on the 21st. In this last instance, one of the robbers forgot to pull his mask down before pulling his gun out, affording a glimpse of his face. NYPD asks anyone with any info to call 1-800-577 TIPS (8477), visit www.nypdcrimestoppers.com, or text to 274637 (CRIMES), then enter TIP577.
Also from the Village Voice:
Check out this guy who robbed a Dunkin' Donuts on Merrick Avenue in Jamaica on Sunday night: he flashes a gun at his hip and intimidates the server into handing over cash from the register -- while apparently talking on his cell phone. Everyone's busy these days, but couldn't it wait till he was done with his robbery? Maybe he was receiving instructions ("Now tell the clerk not to call the police").
