Police are looking for three individuals, described as three black males, about 18 years-old. Two of them are about 5′ 6″, and weigh about 130 pounds. They are sought after by the police in connection to three robberies that happened in the 63rd Precinct in the past month.

It started when two people walked into the Mill Basin Pharmacy at 5829 Avenue T on August 16 at around 10:20am. They flashed a gun and demanded that the person behind the counter give them cash and drugs. The pharmacy employee complied, and gave them an undisclosed amount of money, and drugs. The thieves then fled in an unknown direction, according to police

They were only getting started, however. On September 1, around 4:20pm, the individuals walked into Cigar Land at 2069 Flatbush Ave, and once again brandished a black firearm. They demanded money from the cigar shop employee. The took the money, and five cartons of cigarettes, according to police.

Most recently, on September 8, at about 3pm, three people entered This Way Pharmacy at 3601 Quentin Rd. They showed their black gun to the 38 year-old woman working at the pharmacy and demanded she give them money and drugs — just like they did in the first incident. The woman complied and gave the robbers $300 and an undetermined amount of oxycodone, according to police.

One of the thieves is described as having a medium complexion, and was wearing a black baseball cap, brown shorts, white sneakers, and a white t-shirt. Another perpetrator was also described as having a medium complexion, and was wearing black jeans with a white t-shirt, and black sneakers. There is no clear description of the third suspect besides his age, 18, and his race.

A surveillance video at one of the locations caught the three suspects standing on a sidewalk, possibly scanning the area. See it below:
