NEW YORK (WABC) -- Police made an arrest in a flat tire scam that's ripped off at least 16 drivers in New York City.
50-year-old Mario Gutierrez of Queens faces grand larceny charges for four of the crimes.
Police are searching for at least two other suspects.
Their MO is to distract drivers by telling them their car has a flat tire.
They then steal things from the car while the driver isn't looking.
