SOUTH JAMAICA — Police were looking for two suspects wanted in connection with a trio of stick ups at hotels over a two month period.

The spree began Dec. 29, when the suspects walked into a Quality Inn near the corner of 94th Avenue and 143rd Street, pulled a gun and demanded cash from the clerk, police said. They fled with money and an iPad, according to the NYPD.

Then on Feb. 4, the duo struck a Howard Johnson along Rockaway Boulevard at about 6:30 p.m., according to police. Using the same tactics, the pair made off with cash, the NYPD said.

The next day, the two suspects escaped with an unknown amount of money after flashing a gun at the clerk of a La Quinta in South Richmond Hill, according to police.

In each instance, the suspects fled the scene in a silver Audi, the NYPD said.

Those with information should contact NYPD’s Crimestoppers by calling 1-800-577-TIPS (8477), visiting its website at or texting 274637 (CRIMES) and entering TIP577.

What Is wrong with these black people who kill with no regard to life? I guess your parents and grandparents didn't teach you anything about what Martin Luther King did for you, lowlives. Poverty and mental illness plus drugs equal death.So sad to see a young black person die for nothing. Btw there is still slavery happening in some parts of the world. Instead of the government can pay three meals and a cot for a killer, I say, NYC save your money and send them to be slaves in other parts of the world because I'm sick of these wanna be gangsters thinking they running ny.The bloods and crips need to be abolished NOW!!!!
