Bronx Bonnie & Clyde Rob Mechanic


Caught on Camera Making Off with $1,300 Cash


NEW YORK- Cops are searching for a Bronx “Bonnie & Clyde” who robbed a local mechanic in East Tremont. 


Investigators released video from inside the Webster Avenue mechanic shop the pair had burglarized. 

At around 4:30 pm on May 18, a man and a woman walked into Vitico Auto Body Shop located at 2102 Webster Avenue. 

The male spoke to a worker about purchasing tires. As the employee showed him a selection of tires, the woman snuck into the back office. 

A hidden camera in the office shows the woman searching through the desk and the office until finding the register. She removed $1,300 in cash.  

An exterior camera showed the pair walking away from the shop on Webster Avenue casually making their escape on foot. 

Both were wearing hoodies to partially conceal their faces. However, Bronx cops are hoping the videos will lead to tips identifying the couple. 

It is uknown at this time whether this is the pair’s first heist or if they had pulled similar robberies before.

The first suspect is described as an African-American woman who is approximately 20 years of age. She has long, black hair and was last seen wearing a black jacket with a multi-colored hood, multi-colored pants and gray boots. 

The second suspect is an African-American male, 20 years old with a dark complexion. He was last seen wearing a black jacket, a gray hooded sweatshirt, brown pants and gray sneakers.
