Reynaldo Nazario was indicted on grand larceny and other charges

    Prosecutors say a New York City man went on a three-month car-stealing spree, taking more than two dozen vehicles to sell them for scrap.

    Bronx District Attorney Robert Johnson announced Friday that Reynaldo Nazario has been indicted on grand larceny and other charges. The 35-year-old Nazario is being held on $100,000 bond.
    His lawyer didn't immediately return a call Friday night. A call to Nazario's Bronx home rang unanswered.
    Nazario has previous stolen-car convictions. Frank Nazario told The New York Times his brother "can't stay away from" cars.
    Prosecutors say Nazario stole 26 cars between Aug. 9 and Oct. 23. The DA's office says he falsely swore he owned them so he could sell them without a title at a Bronx scrapyard.
    Prosecutors say he got about $350 per car.
