BROOKLYN (PIX11) — The NYPD is looking for a band of thieves that attempted to burglarize two Brooklyn banks, but failed both times.

On Wednesday, the trio broke into a Citi Bank on Utica Avenue in East Flatbush at 5 a.m. by prying open a door at the rear entrance of the bank. The suspects attempted to break into the teller cash compartments, but left empty handed.

Then on Thursday, the wanna-be bank robbers broke into an M&T Bank on Atlantic Avenue in Brownsville but again fled with no cash when the alarm sounded.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
