Bandit hitting car lots, lifting tires
June 5, 2003
A recent series of burglaries involving the theft of tires from cars parked in lots has prompted the Carson City Sheriff’s Department to ask the public for help.
“Someone has come in late at night, gotten into the cars, used the jacks from the cars, placed the cars on something, and took the tires and wheels from Hondas,” Detective Steve Johnson said. “We’ve had several sets of tires taken.”
Johnson said, in another instance, tires and specialized seats were stolen from a new Cadillac.
Johnson is asking anyone with information involving the suspects in these crimes or who has seen suspicious activity around Carson-area car lots recently to call the sheriff’s department at 887-2020, ext. 1400.
“Any help from the public is always appreciated — the more eyes for us,” he said.
