Police are looking for a dastardly duo who they say stole two pairs of designer sunglasses from a Flatbush Avenue Extension store on Jan. 31.

The man and woman entered the store between DeKalb Avenue and Fulton Street at 1: 26 pm, according to a police report. They grabbed two pairs of Cazal shades and took off on Flatbush towards Livingston Street, the report says. The specs retail for $600 a pair, cops said.

Spike Lee modeled Cazal glasses last year in a photo shoot in front of his production company’s Fort Greene office.

Anyone with information about the theft is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577–8477. The public can also submit tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website at, or by text-messaging tips to 274637 and entering “TIP577”.
