Customers at a Bronx mechanic weren’t looking to get their oil changed or brakes fixed, but instead were locked and loaded for a robbery.
According to the NYPD, on Oct. 25, two men entered Fordham Auto Plus at 2409 Jerome Avenue and held a gun to a 29-year-old man. With a barrel to his face, he forked over two necklaces, valued at $2,050 and the crooks fled on foot southbound on Jerome Avenue towards East 184 Street.
The individual depicted in the attached video is described as a light-skinned male; last seen wearing a black sweatshirt with a Nike logo on the front, black shorts and green/white sneakers.
