Thrifty thieves spotted stealing coupons out of newspapers

A band of thieves went coupon-clipping — swiping bundles of newspapers from stores around Staten Island and then taking the discount vouchers out of them, police said Tuesday.

The group of men first removed numerous copies of the Staten Island Advance — totaling $2,600 — from various businesses in the Todt Hill area between 2:15 and 5 a.m. on Sunday.

The newspapers were later found discarded in a parking lot at 218 Jewett Ave. — with all their coupons missing.

Surveillance video released by cops shows the unidentified individuals fleeing the location in a silver or gray Lexus. The men were all between 30 and 35 years old.
