Thief steals FedEx truck, takes it on 75-block joyride through Manhattan

A would-be package thief wound up stealing an entire FedEx delivery truck and taking it for a 75-block joyride through Manhattan on Tuesday, cops said.

The 60-year-old thief, whose name had not been released, hopped into the delivery truck on E. 28th St. and First Ave. just after 10:20 a.m., cops said.

With the keys still in the unoccupied truck, the thief took advantage and headed uptown.

He made it all the way up First Ave. to E. 103rd St., before he crashed into a parked car.

The crook then bailed out, holding a package from the wrecked truck, but two NYPD officers arrested him before he could escape, cops said.

Charges against the suspect were still pending Tuesday evening.
