NYC Subway Service Suspended After Thief Escapes Custody

NYC Subway Service Suspended After Thief Escapes Custody

Prepare to overdose on your case of the Mondays: the NYPD has shut down the A, B, C and D trains as they search for a slippery suspect who slid right out of custody. The 17-year-old necklace-snatcher was apprehended by police earlier today, only to break free of officers during the perp walk from his Hamilton Heights residence and shake them like Barry Sanders on the way to freedom

To aid police in their search for the elusive teen, MTA has suspended service for those four trains in both directions. The suspect had been arrested last week after two women in their 60s had their necklaces snatched, and today's arrest was for yet another incident. 

If you're trying to get around the city on any one of those lines, we feel for you.
