BAYCHESTER, The Bronx (WABC) -- A tractor-trailer hauling five vehicles, including a Porsche, was reported stolen in the Bronx Tuesday.

The driver told police he parked the 2016 freightliner at Edison and Bartow avenues in the Baychester section, where similar trucks regularly park, around 5 p.m. Monday.

When he returned Tuesday morning, the tractor trailer was gone.

Broken glass was found near the scene .

The truck was carrying a 1993 Porsche 911, a 2016 Jeep Wrangler, a 2019 Acura RX, a 2019 Lincoln Navigator and a 2019 Mercedes GLC300.

The victim told police he owns a business that transports cars.

Freddie Colon, who works security and sometimes stops in the area on his break, said he was surprised by the brazen theft.

"Wow, I'm shocked," he said. "I mostly come here to relax, you know? I've never seen none of this happen here...If I would have seen it, I would have stopped it. But unfortunately, I wasn't here at that time when it happened. But I will keep my eye on it."

The 2016 freightliner has New York license plate number 77790PC. Anyone with information is urged to contact police.
