NYC Man With 70+ Prior Arrests Busted for Cab, Car Break-Ins: Police

A New York City man allegedly burglarized at least five cars on Sunday, all of them livery cabs — and police say he has been doing the same thing for almost 40 years.

A police bodycam released by the NYPD showed an officer running after 62-year-old Robert Williams on Sunday after witnesses identified him as a suspect who was breaking into vehicles along Elderts Lane in East New York. One cellphone video recorded by a witness also allegedly shows Williams getting out of a car he broke into that morning.

For-hire driver Mohammad Hossain says he was one of the victims in Williams’ alleged break-in spree.

“My wallet also has my green card, social security, work permit and my four credit cards, two debit card, driver’s license…actually I lost everything,” Hossain said, counting all his missing items. He’s now forced to stop working just before the holidays.
