Police are looking for three suspects who allegedly stole $112,000 worth of jewelry from a store inside the Queens Center Mall last week

The suspects – two men and a woman — allegedly carried out the heist at Zales Jewelry at around 6:45 p.m. on July 6 while the store was open.

Video footage released by police Wednesday shows the three suspects inside the store casually looking at jewelry moments before they committed the alleged theft.

Police say the assailants then removed a glass pane from a display case and swiped the jewelry.

The trio then fled the 90-15 Queens Blvd. mall on foot to parts unknown.

The NYPD also released images of the suspects entering the mall taken on the day of the alleged theft.

Police describe all three suspects as being in their mid-20s.

There were no injuries reported.

Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).

Look at all of the crimes committed in this city – every day, in every borough, ever minute of the day and night – black lives matter? Nope. I say we take down all of the signs, murals, etc.
