TRIBECA —  Police are looking for two young men who spray-painted and broke into a TriBeCa building, while one was wearing a blue jacket with "NYPD" printed on the back.

The two men climbed the fire escape at 139 Franklin St., near Varick Street, a building home to a storage center, at about 1:53 a.m. on Dec. 7, police said.

The pair spray-painted a side of the building, then climbed to the roof, where they managed to enter the building, according to authorities.

Police said it was unclear if the men took anything from the building, but are wanted for criminal impersonation and burglary.

A video released by the NYPD shows the two young men talking on their cellphones while inside the building.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS (8477). Tips can also be submitted online at the Crime Stoppers' website at www.nypdcrimestoppers.com or by texting tips to CRIMES (274637), then entering TIP577. All calls are confidential.
