MANHATTAN — These guys might be a couple of pins short of strike.

A group of crooks broke into a Harlem bowling alley and dashed off with cash — but only after leaving their grinning faces on surveillance video, according to cops.

According to cops, the four suspects broke into Harlem Lanes bowling alley, at 2116 Seventh Ave., on Feb. 7, through the fire door.

Once inside, they can be seen moseying around, and grinning at times, as they make their way to the register, the video shows.

Police said that they made off with an unknown amount of cash during the break-in, which occurred at 11:55 p.m.

Anyone with information is asked to call the NYPD's Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS.

The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers Website at WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM or texting their tips to 274637(CRIMES) then enter TIP577.
