Law enforcement officials bust an international auto theft ring based in Queens.

Officials say 14 people were arrested after a year-long investigation led by the NYPD and Attorney General Eric Schneiderman’s office.

They’re accused of stealing Toyotas and high-end Lexus models off Brooklyn and Queens streets by using portable computers to access vehicle information numbers.

The data was then used to obtain key codes from an employee at a Florida dealership involved in the ring.
