Cambria Heights man working at John F. Kennedy International Airport allegedly stole two Jetway motors with the intention of selling them for scrap metal.

On Thursday at the airport’s Terminal 7, witnesses saw 30-year-old James Hicks-Johnson, who works for a de-icing company, place two Jetway motors into his company’s vehicle and then drive off, according to authorities.

Hicks-Johnson did not have any authorization to remove the engines, which were valued at $7,000 each and belonged to British Airways, according to Port Authority Police. When he returned to the terminal he was placed under arrest by Port Authority police officers.

When questioned Hicks-Johnson made statements suggesting that he intended to sell the property for scrap metal, authorities said.

He was charged with grand larceny and criminal possession of stolen property.

One McDonald’s customer had a not-so-happy meal after a woman threatened to castrate him during a knifepoint robbery.

Kimberly Horvath was charged with robbery and menacing for pointing a pink knife at an unsuspecting diner inside an Astoria McDonald’s at 31-73 Steinway St. on March 26 and telling him to give her $20, according to a criminal complaint.

“How about I rob you right now? I can cut you up with my knife. I will cut your b—s off,” Horvath allegedly told the victim, John Briscione, according to the court document.

Horvath then  snatched a bag with two DVDs from his hands, the complaint said.

She was also charged with grand larceny, criminal possession of stolen property and criminal possession of a weapon.

Horvath is being held on $7,500 bail and her next appearance is scheduled for April 10 at the Queens Criminal Court.
