Robbers tie up victims, steal $45,000 in liquor from Brooklyn store
Police are searching for a trio of robbers who tied up people inside a Brooklyn liquor store last week and stole cases of alcohol worth $45,000.
The incident occurred Jan. 20 shortly after midnight at Willmohr Wine and Liquor in Brownsville.
The three suspects entered the Willmohr Street store and asked a 41-year-old clerk if they sold liquor. The robbers then displayed silver firearms and ordered everyone to the ground, police said. They then tied everyone up with duct tape, binding their hands, legs and mouths.
In addition to the liquor, the men stole $3,000 worth of lottery tickets, $500 in cash and two cell phones worth $1,100, police said.
All three suspects are described as black males in their 20s, weighing about 160 lbs.
Police released surveillance video of the robbery, which shows the victims face down on the floor as the armed robbers rifle through their pockets.
Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477). The public can also submit tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website or by texting their tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then entering TIP577.
