Cybersecdn- New York City is currently on high alert as the NYPD intensifies its search for four individuals linked to a series of 20 robberies across Manhattan and Queens. The culprits, who remain at large, have shown a distinct pattern in their criminal activities, predominantly targeting high-value Apple headphones. In a daring escalation of their usual modus operandi, they also reportedly stole a motorcycle in one of their heists.
The police disclosed that these perpetrators employ a variety of modes of transport including motorcycles, Citi Bikes, e-bikes, and mopeds, to approach their targets swiftly and escape. This mobility has enabled them to strike across diverse neighborhoods, leaving residents of Forest Hills, Astoria, Long Island City, Greenwich Village, East Village, and Gramercy Park in a state of apprehension.
The NYPD urges anyone with information to come forward and contact the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or, for Spanish speakers, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
