NYC: Stick-up crew stole more than $100,000 in a string of business robberies in Manhattan and Queens

A stick-up crew scored more than $100,000 in a string of violent robberies in Manhattan and Queens this year, police said Wednesday.

Most recently, the crooks netted $60,000 in cash and $20,000 in checks when they robbed a construction company payroll in Corona, Queens, said cops.

In that May 17 heist, the robbers surrounded a 45-year-old man’s car at the intersection of 106th St. and Northern Boulevard in Queens, pushed him against his seat and pointed a gun at him.

They took the man’s backpack, which held his company’s payroll cash, cops said.

The same robbers hit a sign manufacturer at E. 131st St. and Harlem River Drive on March 6, cornering the 36-year-old owner as he opened up for the day.

They led the man at gunpoint to the company safe, tied him up and stole his watch, cell phone and $3,000, cops said.

In their first heist on Jan. 11, the crooks beat a 62-year-old man with a gun and wooden bat on Main St. near 57th Ave. in Flushing, Queens. The victim, who worked for a health-and-beauty wholesaler, was carrying an envelope with $38,000 inside, which the robbers took, cops said.

Police on Wednesday released photos and videos of three suspects, and are asking the public’s help finding them.
