THE BRONX -

The search continues this morning for three thieves accused of hitting up several stores in the city, including the Bronx.

The robberies have taken place over the last two months, with the most recent, taking place on Nov. 19 at Bailey Deli and Grocery on Bailey Avenue.

Police say in each incident, the men walked into the stores, took out a gun and stole hundreds of dollars in cash.

In one case, they even zip-tied several people who were inside during the robbery, according to police.

Police also say they used a car to get away after each robbery.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
