The tire and rim bandits are back.
The owner of a car parked on 43rd Street (btw. 43rd Ave and Skillman Ave) woke up to discover that his/her four tires and rims were missing yesterday.
In the past 28 days, there have been four such incidents of this type in Maspeth, according to police. However, this is the first to occur in Sunnyside for some time.
At the beginning of last year, there were several tire & rim thefts in Sunnyside. However, the activity ceased.
To decrease the chances of being targeted, the police recommend that residents cut their front wheels toward the curb when they park.
