LOWER EAST SIDE, Manhattan (PIX11) — A pair of men stole $2,000 from a Manhattan corner store, but they did it without taking a penny from the cash register, police said.
The thieves walked into the store on Grand Street on the Lower East Side around 7:20 p.m. on Nov. 22 and approached the cashier. Police said while one of the men distracted the employee, the other man used the electronic device on the register to refund himself $2,000.
No arrests have been made. The NYPD on Saturday released surveillance images of the suspects.
