Report: Two teens wanted in youth basketball scam

Cops are looking for two teen thieves they say are responsible for several East Village robberies, according to the NYPD Daily Blotter in the Post today.

The suspects, believed to be 14 years old, have been going into local businesses under the guise of raising money for a youth basketball team and then swiping phones and computers, police said.

One teen reportedly distracts the store owner while the other teen grabs the electronics. The two are reportedly responsible for five thefts dating back to July.
