Hunt 3 Suspects In Failed Astoria Robbery

Police are searching for a woman and two men who tried to steal a safe from an Astoria 99-Cent store on November 18.

Cops said the suspects walked into the store at 35-10 30th Avenue at about 2 p.m. on November 18, where the two men were captured on surveillance video distracting the store clerk – while the woman crawled under a counter and tried to remove a safe.

The three suspects fled the store empty-handed when the woman was unable to lift the safe, police said.
