A police spokeswoman said the suspect had stolen the Mack truck from the Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s Jamaica Avenue yard early Tuesday morning.“Peoples’ meters were ripped right off of their homes,” said Mark Gross, spokesman for the Long Island Power Authority. “This guy did a lot of damage in a short amount of time.”Police said Grasman caused the one-man wave of destruction by driving southbound on Mecham Avenue, eastbound on Dutch Broadway and southbound on Corona Avenue before he was stopped.The boom snagged overhead wires between poles and houses, transformers and downed poles, Gross said. He added that LIPA crews have been called in from across the Island to help restore power, although there is no estimate on how long that will take.“It’s going to be a very labor intensive day,” he said.An MTA spokeswoman said the 51-year-old suspect has worked for the transit agency for nearly 24 years, adding that the agency “will take proper disciplinary action once the investigation is completed.”last_img read more
