Four brazen thieves used a sledgehammer to break into a New York jewelry store and made off with $100,000 in goods in broad daylight.

Nyken Alston, 21, Alfred Long, 35, Alexander Wilson, 21, from the Bronx, were arrested for shattering the front window of Golden Square Jewelry store in Yonkers at roughly 5.30pm on Thursday.

Cops are nevertheless hunting for a fourth unidentified suspect.

Alston and Long were charged with felony robbery, grand larceny, and burglary and were arraigned on Friday. Wilson was hospitalized after a vehicle crash and will be "charged in the near future."

Surveillance footage reveals two of them hitting the window with sledgehammers many times as two others come into frame. They make a small hole, shoving their hands inside to form a bigger one as they pulled loads of jewelry and gold out.

Meanwhile, Mayor Adams called for more assistance from the federal government and New Yorkers themselves to help crackdown on what he called the city’s latest crime scourge – ghost guns.

“I feel like I’m in an alternate reality. We’re probably the only civilized country that sends their troops into battle and we criticize them every day. That’s what we do,” a frustrated Adams announced to reporters Wednesday at the NYPD’s headquarters in Lower Manhattan, referring to 131 firearms on the table in front of him.
