The vendor was packing up for the day and left the items in a box in the care of an acquaintance. A woman distracted the man while another man approached the table, picked up the box, and walked out of the room. Anyone with information regarding the suspects or robbery has been asked to contact Suffolk County Police Second Squad Detectives by calling 631-854-8252 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-220-TIPS.
