Brooklyn store is latest victim of burglary squad in series of robberies: NYPD

Surveillance video captured a trio of thieves brazenly snatching new phones straight from their screens at a Brooklyn store — part of a string of robberies that have netted criminals more than $32,000 so far, cops say.

The phones in the video were stolen around 3:20 p.m. on May 3 from a T-Mobile store at 1367 Broadway in Bushwick, authorities said.

The three crooks stole $3,200 worth of electronics from the display before fleeing the store in a silver sedan, cops said.

The NYPD posted a video of the crime on Twitter on Sunday.
