NEW YORK (AP) New York City police are looking for a thief who stole about $400,000 from an unlocked armored car in the Bronx and then drove off in the truck.

Police released a surveillance tape that shows the man getting into the back of the truck, which was left running at East Fordham and East Kingsbridge roads on July 30.

Police say he put the money in a bag and then hopped into the driver's seat and drove off.

The thief abandoned the truck a short time later and jumped into a getaway car.

Police say they are investigating whether the heist is part of a string of robberies involving the same company.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 800 577-8477.
