Police are searching for a pair of robbers who were looking for more than just a bright white smile.
On May 1 at about 6:34 p.m. the suspects – both described to be black men between 40 to 45 years old — entered the CVS pharmacy located at 61-01 Woodhaven Blvd., according to authorities.
One of the men then began to place 19 boxes of whitening strips into a plastic bag while the second suspect acted as a lookout, police said. They both then walked out of the store and fled in a gray SUV.
Authorities describe the first suspect as heavy set and last seen wearing a dark colored jacket, light colored pants and a dark colored winter hat.
The second suspect is also heavy set and was wearing a black and white cap, a blue jacket with the words “Yankees” across the chest and black pants.
