Robbed before drop-off
An employee of a local auto dealer was held up at gunpoint just as he was about to deposit the day’s receipts.
The 32-year-old from Bay Ridge Volkswagen said that he was walking along 94th Street toward Third Avenue on his way to a Chase Bank a block away when an unidentified black male approached with a gun in his hand.
“Give it to me, you know what I’m talking about,” the man said, motioning to the late-night deposit bag the victim had in his possession.
The thief ran off with the bag, which contained over $42,000 in cash and checks.
Cops were still looking for the thief as this paper went to press. Anyone with information regarding this incident is urged to contact the 68th Precinct at (718) 439-4211. All calls will be kept confidential.
