A total of four vehicles were stolen in Nassau County this week. Since the string of car thefts, one has been recovered, and a suspect apprehended. The NCPD arrested 17-year-old Dewayne Greene Thursday after the owner’s husband noticed his wife’s vehicle driven Eastbound on Hempstead Turnpike.
 
The suspect, Green, allegedly stole the 2005 Ford at around 1:50 a.m on Wednesday while the owner was warming up her car outside a relative’s home in Roosevelt. When she came back out, the vehicle was no longer there. Inside the Ford at the time were her pocketbook and wallet.
 
Nassau County police found the car stopped on Stewart Avenue near Key Lane in Hicksville after the 38-year-old female victim’s husband saw the Ford on the road the next day. 
 
The teenage car thief was arrested at around 10:34 a.m on Thursday. The woman’s wallet and pocketbook were found along the Southern State Parkway after Green allegedly discharged them from the vehicle.
 
Green was charged with Grand Larceny in the Third Degree, Grand Larceny in the Fourth Degree, and Unlicensed Operation of a Motor Vehicle. He was arraigned on Friday, January 3rd.
 
It’s unknown whether the teenager had anything to do with the three other cars stolen in West Hempstead hours before being arrested. At the time of those particular robberies, all three owners left their cars unattended. The Honda and Mercedes Benz owner’s cars were stolen as they left it on to heat their car, while the Toyota owner fell victim after running back inside to collect some belongings.
