Six smash-and-grab thieves who broke into the Mackage Clothing Boutique in SoHo this week and stole $40,000 in luxury coats remain at large, police reported.

Cops said the burglary occurred at 11:12 p.m. on Jan. 23 at the store located at 123 Mercer St.

According to law enforcement sources, one of the thieves hurled a large, unknown object through the glass front door, allowing him and his cohorts entry.

Video footage that the NYPD released on Jan. 25 shows the crook hurling the object, which appears to be similar to a concrete slab, through the door. The suspects are shown entering the shop, then exiting moments later, clutching armfuls of coats.

In all, police reported, the sextet grabbed 52 coats, valued at $40,000, and fled inside two getaway vehicles — a gray BMW X5 and a black Lincoln Town Car.

The burglary was reported to the 1st Precinct.

Cops released the following descriptions of the burglars:

  • Individual 1 – A male with a dark complexion and an athletic build who was last seen wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, dark colored sweatpants and sneakers.
  • Individual 2- A male with a light complexion, short dark hair and a thin build last seen wearing a black fur hooded winter jacket, blue jeans and brown boots.
  • Individual 3 – A male with a medium complexion, short dark hair and a thin build, who was last seen wearing a gray-and-black hooded jacket, dark colored sweat pants, black sneakers and a silver skull mask.
  • Individual 4 – A male with a dark complexion and a thin build, who was last seen wearing a black knit hat, camouflage hooded winter jacket, light colored pants and multi-colored sneakers.
  • Individual 5 – A male with a large build who wore black pants, a black hooded sweatshirt, a blue and yellow winter jacket and white sneakers.
  • Individual 6 – An adult male who wore light blue jeans, sneakers, a black hooded winter jacket.
