Two men caught on camera stealing tires off SUV at local dealership

Posted: Updated:

Two thieves busted into a local dealership and stole the tires right off an SUV and the whole thing was caught on camera.

Employees at Autolane off SE 82nd were busy on Tuesday replacing tires, rims and lug nuts after someone stole them from one of their SUV's Monday night.

"I can't believe people are as brazen as they are and they take things that didn't belong to them," said an assistant manager at Autolane.

The theft was caught on camera giving employees and detectives a clear look at the people behind it all. 

Surveillance videos shows two guys walk across the parking lot, figure out which car to target and then take the tires off the SUV.

It was an upsetting sight for employees to see, also because they said it's the second time in a matter of days they've been hit.

"On Saturday, they cut the fence, slipped in and drove the truck out and hit another truck while leaving."

The dealership said it's the latest theft they've heard of, among many dealerships on their street.

"I've heard a lot of the same type of stuff is going on at other places. Wheels, tires, windows being broken, stereos stolen, on and on and on. It's really hard to keep up with the theft going on lately, really tough."

They're now planning to install lights and better security systems to prevent it from happening again. They also said they are now offering their own private reward of $200 for information that leads to the arrest of the two men.
