An unmarked New York Police Department vehicle was stripped of its tires and left on cinder blocks in the South Bronx after being stolen three days earlier. 

The Ford Taurus, part of the Bronx Special Victims Unit, had last been seen parked outside of a local grocery store at East 167 and Fox Streets on Tuesday.

Detectives were ‘pinged’ the vehicle’s location on Friday, and found the scrapped vehicle outside of a laundromat near the Bronx River, the New York Post reports.

Photos show the condition the Taurus was left in, with the car’s fender and tires missing and it sitting on the cinder blocks. 

The seats had been removed and most of the inside had been destroyed. The steering wheel has been left behind, however. 

According to a law enforcement source familiar with the incident, the car has been flat-bedded and is at the Eerie Basin Tow Pound.   

Authorities are investigating the theft of the vehicle.
