Aug. 15, 2019 By Shane O’Brien

The police are looking for two men who broke into a ferry docked at an upmarket yacht club in Whitestone last week and stole liquor.

The duo broke in through a window while the ferry was docked at the Malba Yacht Club, located at 143-01 Malba Dr., on Monday, Aug. 5 at around 10:20 p.m. The ferry was unoccupied at the time of the burglary.

Once on board, the pair stole 10 bottles of liquor before fleeing eastbound on Malba Drive, police said.

Footage of the thieves was captured by the yacht club’s CCTV system as the pair got on the boat.

Police describe one suspect as being light-skinned, while the other is described as being dark-skinned.

Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the CrimeStoppers website at WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM or on Twitter @NYPDTips. All calls are strictly confidential.
