Police are searching for two men wanted in connection to a burglary that took place inside a Greenpoint apartment building earlier this year.

On Jan. 23, around 4 a.m., a 33-year-old man who lives at 182 Driggs Ave. returned home to find that his bicycle, which had been locked up in the lobby of the building, was stolen.

An investigation by police found that two men had entered the building through the front door and stole the bike, worth approximately $1,800. After taking the bike, the two men fled the scene in an unknown direction, police said.

Both suspects are described as Hispanic, 20 to 30 years old, and were last seen wearing all dark clothing.
