Police are searching for two men who stole a variety of medications and other products from a Greenpoint Rite Aid twice in the last month.

One of the men entered the Rite Aid at 783 Manhattan Avenue at around 4:50 p.m. on Oct. 16, and stole Nexium, Prilosec and Crest White Strips, police say.

The same man entered the Rite Aid with an accomplice just days later at around 3:30 a.m. on Oct. 24, and stole Rogaine, Mucinex, Culturelle, Nexium, Prilosec, Align, Zertec, Allegra and Nasacort. Both men then fled the scene.

In-store surveillance footage released by NYPD shows the two suspects entering the Manhattan Avenue pharmacy during the Oct. 24 robbery.
