Bronx Body Shop Catches ATV Thefts on Camera

A body shop owner is asking for the public’s help in tracking down two suspects who stole three-wheel ATVs from his shop. The owner says this is the first time in decades he’s been robbed. A surveillance video shows two men breaking into Personal Touch Auto Body on Boston Road on Memorial Day and pushing two of the ATVs that were up for sale onto the street, and then coming back to return for the third one. “These two proceeded into the building and tried for 5-10 minutes to start these trikes that I have for sale,” said Mike Trinagel. The two thieves desperately tried to start the ATV’s. When that effort failed, they wheeled the two vehicles up Boston Road.

However they got greedier. They actually came back after 3:00 in the morning and stole a third trike. They couldn’t get to a fourth one because it was blocked in between cars and a sign. The three ATV’s are worth about $6,000. Trinagel is offering a $2,000 reward for the return of the Trikes, and a $1,000 reward for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the two men.
