10 accused of auto thefts in Queens, Brooklyn

Posted: Updated:

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - State police and Queens prosecutors say 10 men have been indicted on grand larceny and other charges for stealing cars from dealerships in Queens and Brooklyn for resale.

The indictment says the men from Queens and Brooklyn stole 11 vehicles, including one taken from a private individual, in late 2011 and early 2012.

Queens District Attorney Richard Brown says that in the early 1990s "an astounding" 50,000 cars a year were reported stolen in Queens, a total that has dropped to fewer than 3,000 a year now.

Authorities say the eight-month investigation included undercover buys and court-authorized electronic surveillance.

    Cardinal, leaders meet about NYPD-community relations

    Timothy Cardinal Dolan gathered religious and city leaders with the focus of how to ease tensions between police and the community in advance of this Saturday's march to protest the death of Eric Garner. Some of the leaders in this group are rarely photographed together, let alone seated at the same table. But they were brought together over concerns about possible protest violence by the cardinal, one of the most powerful figures in the city and who commands respect across the board.
