Police are looking for the guys who broke into two Coney Island eateries and stole thousands of dollars.

The duo smashed the front door of Peggy O’Neills at 4:40 am on Jan. 17 and stole $12,000 from the MCU Park-adjacent pour house, police said.

Then the pair kicked in a rear door at the Popeye’s on Surf Avenue between W. 12th Street and Stillwell Avenue at 2 am on Jan. 26 and pinched $10,000 from the manager’s office, law enforcement sources said.

Officials only described the burglars as “two males.”

Police are asking anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577–TIPS, log on to, or text tips to 274637 and enter “TIP577.”
