Thieves Steal 110 Wheels From Dealership Cars On A 4 Hour Steal-a-thon

Written By:

Over $200,000 (Rs. 1.3 Crore) worth of wheels and tires were stolen overnight from 48 cars at a Chevrolet dealership in Texas, reports Automotive News.

Texas Police Department informed the media that they believe the heist only took around four hours.

The wheels were missing from the vehicles in the dealership's inventory, where the vehicles were left on construction blocks with their lug nuts laying around the ground.

Thieves cut the locks to the parking lot, disabled the security system, and went on a spree.

The surveillance video shows a truck entering the compound at 1:22 a.m., but it was too dark to identify how many suspects were involved.

Most of the stolen wheels are 20 or 22-inch wheels. The reports suggest that some of the wheels taken from Camaros were ordinary ones.

The dealership estimates that the stolen items were worth between $200,000 to $250,000, although the dealership is still calculating their exact losses. A few of the cars had been damaged when they were left up on blocks.
