A trio of Midtown burglars waited for the stroke of midnight to pull off a $6 million New Year’s Eve heist, law enforcement sources said Monday. “They laid in wait until the ball dropped,” said a law enforcement source. The three hooded and masked men broke into a West 36th Street jewelry wholesaler at 12:01 a.m. Sunday in what appears to be an inside job — while 7,000 cops were distracted protecting Times Square revelers just a few blocks away. The source said the thieves “100 percent” planned the heist to coincide with the ball drop. They made off with around $6 million in gems and are still at large, police sources said.
