Police are looking for three men who broke into five cars in a Target parking lot in College Point over the course of two months and stole cash and credit cards.
The five incidents all occurred between Aug. 23 and Oct. 14, according to the NYPD.
The robberies all took place in a parking lot in the vicinity of a Target store located at 135-05 20th Ave., where the three men broke into cars and stole cash, credit cards and personal property. The credit cards were used in local stores shortly after.
