Five people are under arrest in connection with a bizarre burglary in Queens.

It happened last Friday morning at the JK Deli in Kew Gardens Hills.

When police arrived, they found that the ATM had been broken into.

Police went inside the deli and saw a hole in the ceiling.

One officer climbed up to the roof and found four of the suspects hiding up there.

They scattered, and one was arrested inside an elevator from a neighboring building, according to police.

According to police, two others were caught in a tree, and the fourth was arrested up on the roof of the deli.

Police confiscated $12,000 in cash, 16 cartons of cigarettes, 49 boxes of cigars and more than 3,000 lottery tickets.

A fifth suspect was found waiting for the others in a nearby car.

They all face charges of burglary and criminal possession of stolen property.
