A Lexus NX owner in New York had their vehicle stolen TWICE by the same teenager, along with a pair of shoes.

Curious if the owner is on this forum.



THE BRONX — A teenage stole a Lexus SUV from an Edenwald home and took it for a joyride — and then after it was recovered, he came back two days later to try to steal it again from the same driveway, police said

The teen, described as being between 16 and 18 years of age, entered the house through an unlocked back door at Ely Avenue near East 233rd Street at 9:22 p.m. on Sunday, May 17, according to video released by the NYPD.

The teen swiped the keys for the 2015 Lexus, which was parked in the house’s driveway, along with a pair of shoes, according to the video. He hopped into the vehicle and drove off, police said.

The car was found undamaged on Monday about seven miles away on Concord Avenue near East 150th St. in the south Bronx, police said.

The next day, on May 19, the teen returned to try to steal the car again, but was chased off by a neighbor, officials said.

Surveillance video of the incident shows the young man opening the gate to the driveway, then running away when he was confronted.

Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD's Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS.

Looks like an Eminent white pearl NX.

This just goes to show, doing simple things like locking your gate can go a long way.

I have family in queen that have their vehicles parked like this, but lock the gate.

Funny, most of this has been curbed by the advent of smart ignition technology, no more red to red means go. Nothing from stopping someone with the keys however. I'm curious though, were these people home considering he just walked in the back door...

That's the thing -- sure you should never steal anything from anyone, but if you leave the keys out and your back door open at night, you are kind of asking for it. Seems pretty simple to stop this from happening.

What surprises me is of all places for someone to be so careless, the Bronx is where they're being careless.

By default locking up and doing all the preventative things we know we should be doing goes a long way.
