YOU READ IT HERE FIRST: Tenafly police said they caught a one-legged thief from Pennsylvania and his alleged accomplice after a brief stolen car chase into Alpine overnight.

Rookie Officer Jakub Glebocki made the arrests after a chase that began around 1:30 a.m., when the silver Toyota Camry reported stolen from LaGuardia Airport a short time earlier passed him headed northbound on Route 9W, Capt. Michael deMoncada told CLIFFVIEW PILOT this afternoon.

Its headlights were off and it was going at “an unusually slow speed,” he said.

As Glebocki turned to follow, the driver — identified as 19-year-old Kevin Sarauw ( above, right ) hit the gas and kept going, despite the police car lights and sirens, deMoncada said.

Police from Alpine and Cresskill quickly converged as backups, cornering the pair on an Alpine dead-end street.

Sarauw was being held on $15,000 bail in the Bergen County Jail, charged with eluding. He also received summonses for reckless driving, speeding, failing to maintain a lane and driving without headlights — or a license, the captain said.

Meanwhile, 50-year-old amputee Horacio Garnsey ( above, left ) was being held on $2,500 bail, charged with theft.
