Police released dramatic video footage Saturday of Brooklyn armed robbers who pilfered items at gunpoint from a vaping shop earlier this week.

Law enforcement sources said cameras caught images of the quartet robbing the Vape N Cloud store at 573 Nostrand Ave. in Crown Heights at about 11:12 p.m. on Jan. 26.

As shown in the footage, one of the perpetrators, an unidentified male, who acted as a lookout during the heist, holds open the front door of the establishment to three other male crooks who walk inside.

A camera behind the counter shows the armed robbers approaching, with one individual displaying a firearm wrapped in a towel and pointing it at an unseen individual.

Police said the suspects proceeded to remove $200 in cash, a cellphone and assorted merchandise. They then left with the lookout man on foot in an unknown direction.

The incident was reported to the 77th Precinct. No one was injured.
