Man accused of stealing items from Rego Pk. car

REGO PARK — A criminal who reportedly left a trail for investigators was arraigned two weeks ago on charges of breaking into a woman’s car and stealing her property, the Queens district attorney’s office said.

Christopher Jeffries, 38, of 67th Avenue, was charged May 3, with grand larceny, criminal mischief and petit larceny in the March 3 incident, the Queens DA’s office said.

The victim parked her car, which had credit cards, a laptop and cash, at the corner of 62nd Avenue and 93rd Street around 6 p.m. and, when she returned to the spot two hours later, she discovered that her rear driver’s-side window was broken and the property was stolen, the criminal complaint said.

Investigators were able to recover a pair of sunglasses and a screwdriver that were allegedly left behind by the thief, according to the criminal complaint. Crime technicians matched DNA found on the sunglasses to Jeffries’ DNA, which was on file with the NYPD for a previous crime, the complaint said.
