New York City Wheelchair Bandit Nabbed By Cops: Video

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Midtown`s wheelchair bandit has had his last ride, cops say.

Police Friday nabbed Matias Moreno-Boza, 25, of Perth Amboy, who they said snatched four women`s purses from different Midtown hot spots throughout August and September, apparently committing all the thefts while using a wheelchair."


New York Daily News

This hell on wheels criminal went to the well once too often, he snatched women`s purses from several pricey restaurants in the last couple of months.

The cops didn`t say whether Moreno-Boza really is handicapped or if he used the wheelchair merely as a ploy. It`s genius for a thief to use a wheelchair as a prop; nobody would ever suspect a handicapped individual of being a thief.

If this creep really is handicapped, he could have learned a trade, or held a tin cup outside a restaurant, instead of resorting to a life of crime.

I ain`t afraid of no wheelchair-bound thief, I`ll roll the sucker.

I hope the judge throws the chair as this dude; he is a menace to society and a rolling crime wave.
