The police are looking for two suspects who loaded up their shopping carts with pain relievers and walked out of BJ’s Wholesale Club on 48th Street without paying.
The alleged thieves, a male and a female, walked into the 34-60 48th St. store at around 8:10 p.m. on Friday and placed thousands of dollars worth of Advil, Tylenol and Pepcid in their respective carts.
They then exited the store via the emergency exit and the pair were last seen in a dark-colored four-door sedan.
Police said the merchandise was valued at close to $8,000.
The police released a photo and video of the suspects taken from the store. The store is new to the area, having opened in January.
Anyone with information in regard to the theft is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
Welcome to the neighborhood, BJ’S. My store has been dealing with people like this for YEARS. And thanks to bail reform, they’ll be back 29 more times even after they’re caught.
