Crown Heights notorious car thief Terrance Nelson, who has been breaking into cars for many years and locked up many times, has been arrested Wednesday evening after being caught in the act by a quick-thinking victim.
At approximately 10:45 pm, Crown Heights resident Yossel Mochkin was approaching his car, which was parked on Union Street just off Kingston Avenue, when he spotted Nelson inside.
Mochkin told passersby that he saw Nelson rummaging in his car, so Mochkin began shouting for help.
After receiving a hotline call, Shmira volunteers quickly arrived and apprehended Nelson. They then contacted the police who arrested him.
