The tire and rim bandits are back.
The owner of a new car parked on 50th Avenue and 45th Street lost his/her four tires and rims on Friday, according to two residents.
The car was left resting on blocks, and the passenger side window was smashed in as the thieves gained access to the vehicle.
Mike W, who sent photos of the vehicle, said “this sucks, especially given it’s the holidays.”
Two years ago several car owners discovered their cars on blocks, particularly on blocks near Skillman Avenue. However, the activity ceased and the police made some arrests.
To decrease the chances of being targeted, the police recommend that residents cut their front wheels toward the curb when they park.
