Thief caught on video swiping painting from apartment building

A bandit hauled a painting that was almost as tall as he was out of a Bronx apartment building, new police surveillance video shows.

The crook entered the Morrisania building on Courtlandt Avenue near East 160th Street around 9:30 p.m. on Oct. 5 and snatched the pricey piece, worth $1,100, from the third-floor hallway.

Then he simply carried the large painting by an Italian artist out through the main entrance, the video reveals.

The thief is about 35 years old and 5-foot-10, cops said. He was last seen wearing a blue V-neck sweater, beige pants, a red hat and carrying a red backpack.
