The police released video footage Friday of three men wanted for holding up a Woodside cellphone store at gunpoint last month.
The suspects allegedly entered the AT&T store located at 58-20 Roosevelt Ave. at around 6:55 p.m. on Aug. 26, before one of the men displayed a firearm and forced an employee into the back office and demanded he open the safe.
The men then placed $60,000 worth of cellphones into a duffle bag and fled the location on foot. There were no injuries reported as a result of the incident.
The suspects are described by police as being between 25 to 35 years of age and having a dark complexion. Police have released surveillance video and photos of two of the three suspects that were taken from the store.
