Workers tried to stop the crew from fleeing, but were unsuccessful, cops said. 

Surveillance images released late Wednesday show two of the alleged thieves, as well as a white four-door sedan used by at least one of the suspects.

Earlier this month, a group stole $48,300 worth of luxury goods from the Celine boutique on Wooster Street — a shop that was targeted by looters in a $1.5 million heist in 2020.

Police on Thursday said it’s unknown whether The Real Real incident is connected to a larger theft pattern.
