NY Police Suspect KiaBoys stole an undercover Kia from the Cops

The New York Daily News reports, “A group of thieves stole an undercover cop car and led officers on a chase in the early morning hours of Tuesday — a brazen act that may have been inspired by a viral TikTok challenge — cops and sources said. When cops arrived for the day shift at a police facility in the Bronx neighborhood of Longwood, they realized that an unmarked Kia was missing, a police source said.”

The Daily News continued, “Like all NYPD vehicles, the Kia had a tracking device. Cops responded to the car’s location at Westchester Ave. and Lane Ave. in Westchester Square, where they found four men sitting inside the parked Kia at about 11:20 a.m. When officers approached the car, the driver sped off, prompting a pursuit, a police source said. The group’s joy ride finally came to an end three miles away at Bruckner Expressway and Bryant Ave. in Hunts Point, where the driver struck multiple parked cars and a barrier before all four fled on foot, sources said.”

“The vehicle assigned to Detective Borough Bronx, was taken back into NYPD custody. There have been no arrests and the investigation remains ongoing.”
