BRONX, NEW YORK, September 27- Cops are asking for the public’s help in trying to catch a group of burglars who struck the same Zerega storage facility twice in one month. The criminal masterminds are seen on surveillance video turning one of the cameras around as to not record them. However, the suspect failed to notice a second camera that was taping his exposed face as he disabled the other camera.
Police believe the same group struck the Public Storage Facility at 875 Brush Avenue twice in the same month. The first time was at around 10 p.m. on September 1 when two men wearing baseball caps burglarized the facility.
The crooks struck again at around 10 p.m. on September 22. They struck the same facility but this time they brought along another accomplice who was seen wearing a ski mask and a pony tail. Apparently this is the only member of the burglary ring who bothered to cover his face because police released surveillance video of the two men.
