EAST HARLEM — Thieves swiped more than $6,000 in tools, car parts, and cash from three unattended cars dating back to last week, according to police.

A 45-year-old driver for Chem-Aqua Services reported on March 20 that his company's commercial vehicle was ransacked of two power washers, a power drill, a set of wrenches and a gas tank — all worth $4,290 — while it was parked in a driveway near Second Avenue and East 117th Street overnight, the NYPD said.

A representative for the company could not be reached for comment. 

Three days later, a 45-year-old man reported that he parked his 2017 Range Rover at 201 E. 125th St. around 7:15 a.m. and discovered his car’s rear spoiler, backup camera and left side mirror missing before he returned to it at 2:30 p.m., police said. The items cost a total of $1,284, the victim told police.

Then, on March 25 around 8 p.m., a 42-year-old man returned to his unlocked car at 2267 First Ave. after picking up cash from a bodega and found the driver's side door open and $1,080 in cash missing, police said.

There have been no arrests.
