A Brooklyn man used Zipcar to rent several vehicles near New York City’s John F. Kennedy International Airport. Instead of returning the vehicles after the rental period ended, he stole them and then leased them out on Craigslist, according to a New York Daily News report.

Dorien Holmes got the rental cars from lots in Queens near Kennedy Airport, a Port Authority spokesman told the Daily News. He allegedly rented the stolen cars at rates of $350 per week or $1,000 per month.

Holmes was charged with grand larceny, unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, criminal possession of stolen property as well as driving with a suspended license, the Port Authority told the Daily News.
