NEW YORK - The NYPD arrested two men early on Tuesday morning after an armed robbery spree that spanned three New York City boroughs over a period of several hours.
But one of the suspects is already confident that he'll quickly be back on the streets due to New York's bail laws.
"I'll be out on bail in 24 hours. I'll be out on bail," one of the suspects said as he was placed into the back of an unmarked police car.
Police say the robbery spree started just before 1 a.m. in Corona, Queens. Two females were robbed of jewelry on Alstyne Ave.

The duo continued their robbery spree around 2 a.m. at 72nd St. and Broadway in the Jackson Heights section of Queens. They are accused of robbing six people of cash and jewelry who were sitting in an outdoor dining shed.
About a half hour later the same men are accused of robbing a food truck parked on Washington Square South in the Greenwich Village section of Manhattan.
The last crime took place just after 3 a.m. A woman was robbed outside a Seaman Ave. building in the Inwood section of Manhattan.
