WARNING: DISTRESSING CONTENT. Two men were busted in the Bronx as part of a moped-riding migrant crew that has been snatching cellphones right out of New Yorkers’ hands in daring bursts of street crime — and police sources say they’ve already flipped on the group’s ringleader. NY Post Senior Reporter Joe Marino shares this story. The two suspects, Cleyber Andrade, 19, and Juan Uzcatgui, 23, are allegedly part of a wider ring whose members are connected to 62 different instances of grand larceny throughout the Big Apple — including a shocking, caught-on-video heist in which a 62-year-old woman was brutally dragged down a Brooklyn street, police sources told The Post.Cops are still searching for the ringleader, a Venezuelan migrant named Victor Parra, 30, of the Bronx, who was cut loose by a judge in December after getting picked up for grand larceny, sources said.At a Monday press conference, NYPD Inspector Nicholas Fiore said Parra has convinced others to “go do his dirty work to grab phones and stuff.”“He’s the big target,” Fiore said in a video posted to X. “He’s caused a lot of problems in New York City. And hopefully we’ll grab him, we get some headway on this.”

''Many of the suspects have only recently arrived in the U.S. and live in migrant shelters, according to cops.

Victor Parra is believed to be the man behind the recent crime wave, but the alleged ringleader is in the wind as the NYPD and U.S. Marshals hunt him down.

“He’s the big target,” NYPD Insp. Nicholas Fiore said at a news conference. “He’s caused a lot of problems in New York City. And hopefully we’ll grab him, we get some headway on this.”

Police are still on the hunt for the ringleader - Venezuelan national Victor Parra, 30, who was not home when police served a search warrant in his home in the Bronx

  • "The NYPD is on the hunt for the leader of a criminal enterprise focused on stealing phones and wallets from New York City pedestrians
  • The suspects were allegedly stealing the iPhones to use the Apple Pay feature''

"The New York City Police Department released video it says shows Saturday's attack.
New York Police Department
CNN —
Four migrant men charged with felonies in an attack on two New York City Police Department officers Saturday outside a migrant shelter are en route to a California town near Mexico after they were released from custody and given bus tickets by a faith-based charity, a senior law enforcement official said.''
 
imho, there needs to be a plenty for that judge....

jmho ymmv lrr
One would think but IIRC the men who assaulted the two law enforcement officers were let go. I think they still have one of them. This confused me because it doesn't appear to follow the regular bail procedures.

Only a few scooters remain in front of a hotel housing migrants following a crackdown by the NYPD which confiscated thousands of illegal scooters on February 06, 2024 in New York City. Seven migrants were arrested, including several Monday morning in an NYPD raid in the Bronx, which targeted a gang that was using scooters to snatch mobile phones, bags, and wallets from pedestrians. The arrests come after the release of a surveillance video that shows several migrant men kicking officers on a sidewalk and trying to pry them off a man police had taken to the ground.

''Criminals posing as asylum seekers are turning American cities into war zones.''

''Believe the cops, not the politicians.''
''Migrants in moped gangs and retail theft rings, some carrying guns, are terrorizing the Big Apple, Yonkers and New Jersey.''

''Two-man teams snatch pedestrians’ phones and deliver them to Tren de Aragua stash houses, where professional hackers make fraudulent banking transactions and drain cash from all accounts. Then the phones are wiped clean and shipped to South America for resale.

A 62-year-old woman was brutally dragged down a Brooklyn street by one of these moped thieves who made off with her purse. When you see mopeds, step back from the curb and hug the building — advice usually needed in a third-world city, not New York.

A shopper at JD Sports near Times Square was shot in the leg by baby-faced, 15-year-old migrant Jesus Alejandro Rivas-Figueroa when a security guard tried to stop him from robbing the store on Feb. 8. Figueroa whipped out a .45-caliber handgun and shot into the crowd. He has since been apprehended by police.''
 
This is interesting because 8 or nine months ago NYC started impounding mopeds and electric scooters in some kinda of take back the sidewalk bs.
Then they were auctioning off the stolen from the public items, back to the public. So they can keep filling the pockets of refugees ,who are buying our good at 1/3 the price we pay for them. Still good with that.

I was mad because they were stealing private property and distributing it ,to the highest bidder after taking it on socialistic principles. Then using capitalistic idea's to round off the sitch.
I am like Lewis Black ,mad.

“I invite you to look for [his] mother and all of us join to pay the bail, so that this young Venezuelan feels that you’re not alone in difficult times, but remembers that there is a God up there who sees. Today it could be him, tomorrow it could be you…He did something wrong, it’s okay,” Moreno says in a Feb. 12 TikTok seen 2 million times.

Bbm.

From the above link :
"...tomorrow it could be you..."
What the heck ? No, it will most certainly not be "you/me/any of us"; because most of us are not out dragging people while stealing their phones or whatever from them !!
If a person is dragged quickly enough, they could strike their head on a concrete curb and be killed or forever maimed.

"...He did something wrong, it's okay..."
And how is it 'okay' ?
Crime is never o.k.

So sad and crazy.
I'm not paying a penny to the bail for those who drag people whilst stealing from them.
Omo.

Oh my, I went down the rabbit hole on his TikTok. :oops: He is certainly not popular now.
 
I'd think that perpetuating horrible stereotypes in front of a very large following would be more detrimental to his countrymen than one gunman getting arrested for a crime they were filmed committing but, hey, what do I know
