MANHATTAN — Four men broke through a wall of a Washington Heights deli to steal cash, cigarettes and lotto tickets on Monday, police said.

The crew entered a construction site beside 177 Wadsworth Ave., near 182nd Street, and bore through the side wall about 1:30 a.m., the NYPD said.

They ran off with money from cash registers and an ATM machine, cigarettes and scratch off lottery tickets, police said.

In January, thieves tried to pull a similar style heist up in Inwood but ran off empty-handed when their digging efforts triggered the supermarket's alarms.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS (8477).
