Chip shot

A thief was virtually handed a 2009 BMW when he found it unlocked and idling on 74th Street between Fourth and Fifth avenues on Jan. 28.

The vehicle, which has the vanity plate “9 Iron” was ultimately recovered, although the purse left inside was not.

A 58-year-old driver said that he had left his luxury car running on the block just after 4 pm as he delivered something to a friend.

But during those precious minutes, the thief had rolled off with the vehicle. Cops found the car a few blocks away, but the purse, wallet, $200 and eyeglasses were gone.

Where: 450 74th St.
