The New York City Police Department is on the hunt for three men who they say posed as members of the force and robbed a Queens check cashing store at gunpoint.

Investigators say the suspects entered a Pay-O-Matic on South Conduit Avenue near 247th Street in Rosedale just after 8 a.m. Tuesday.

Police say the men identified themselves as detectives and flashed a gun before stealing an unknown amount of cash.

All three suspects wore navy blue jackets with an NYPD logo on the front and badges around their necks.

Police say the men fled in a dark-colored Ford Expedition with a broken rear passenger window and Virginia license plates.

Anyone with information on the case should contact the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS, or text CRIMES and then enter TIP577, or visit www.nypdcrimestoppers.com.
