THE BRONX - Investigators have released surveillance video of a man who got away with hundreds of thousands of dollars from an unlocked armored truck.

According to authorities, the suspect stuffed about $400,000 into a bag inside a Rapid Armored Corporation truck while it was parked with the keys in the ignition at East Fordham and Kingsbridge roads back on July 30.

They say the man hopped in the driver's seat and drove around the block where he abandoned the vehicle on Valentine Avenue. He then fled the scene in a silver car.

The NYPD says it's investigating whether the crime is part of a string of robberies involving the same armored truck company.
