BRONX - An auto body shop owner is asking for the public's help in tracking down two suspects who stole a few rare three-wheel ATVs from his shop.

A surveillance video shows two men breaking into "Personal Touch Auto Body" on Boston Road last week and pushing two of the ATVs that were up for sale onto the street, and then coming back to return for the third one.

Auto body shop owner Mike Trinagel says he believes the robbery was planned and that the thieves could not have just stumbled upon the three-wheeled vehicles.

“I had disabled all of them to prevent theft,” says Trinagel.

Tringel says that the ATVs will be easy to recognize because they have become rare after that particular model was discontinued in 1985.

And he will be offering a $2,000 reward for whoever returns the three unique ATVs, and another $1,000 for the arrest and conviction of the thieves.
