  • mid city guy

    they only took the third wheel?

  • Not sure if you counted this one but I saw a car around the 1700 block of C street NE Monday morning with all 4 wheels gone too.

    • Do people not buy tire locks? If they are locked your. They are professionals.

      • Well, unfortunately wheel (lug) locks aren’t a fool-proof solution. Wheel lock “keys” are easy to obtain — just go to a car dealer’s parts department — and any self-respecting “professional” wheel thief will have the appropriate key in his tool box.

      • They can remove wheel locks by using a socket that’s slighly larger than the lug-nut. You don’t need a key.
