Brooklyn: Car Thief Steals Van Loaded With Explosives, Turns It Over To Police

nypd 6.jpgThe following are excerpts from an article in today’s NY Post regarding a highly suspicious van found in Brooklyn yesterday. (YWN NOTE: Although still unconfirmed, a highly credible source tells YWN that there was C4 explosives possibly attached to a battery found inside the van.)

At about 5:00PM Thursday, an unidentified thief with a police record broke into a red van that had been parked at 53rd Street and Second Avenue in Brooklyn’s Sunset Park for about a month.

He was stunned when he looked inside – it was filled with gas cans and Styrofoam cups containing a mysterious white substance with protruding wires and switches.

Then he got out and called a cop he knows from his run-ins with the law.

“He did the right thing,” a high-ranking officer said. “And he possibly saved a lot of people’s lives.”

Another source told the Post that cops are unlikely to file charges for the break-in.

The van had Delaware plates that had been issued to another vehicle. It’s not clear when its cargo was put inside.

Police Commissioner Ray Kelly joined cops from the Bomb Squad and the anti-terror task force at the scene. Cops shut down three blocks.

  1. It’s impressive that the Commish joined the “boys” at a potentially dangerous crime scene and didn’t just stay tuned from the comfort of his armchair.
