A car was stolen from a Long Island City auto body shop earlier this month and police are searching for the suspect.
A 44-year-old man who was looking to get his vehicle repaired had parked his 2017 Toyota Camry outside A&P Auto Body and Repair Inc., located at 22-01 37th Ave., on Friday, March 12, police said.
An alleged thief — instead of a mechanic — hopped inside the unlocked Camry just before 11 a.m. and took off. He drove southbound on 22nd Street, police said.
The NYPD said the suspect is a light-skinned man with a beard and mustache. He was last seen wearing a black jacket, blue jeans and black shoes, police said.
