The NYPD is looking for a man wanted in connection to a grand larceny in South Richmond Hill last month.
According to police, on Saturday, Feb. 29, around 10 a.m., a 37-year-old NYPD traffic agent was issuing a summons to a car at the corner of Liberty Avenue and 121st Street, when an unidentified man grabbed the agent’s ticket machine out of their hand.
Making off with the machine worth around $2,500, the man fled eastbound on Liberty Avenue in a white Kia sedan, cops say.
Anyone with information in regard to the identity of this male is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
