Tire and rim theft alert!

Try these tips to avoid having tires and rims stolen

There have been several recent incidents of vehicles having their tires and rims stolen during the very early morning hours. The most targeted types of vehicles have been GM trucks, Jeeps and Toyotas.

The best prevention is reducing your vulnerability. If at all possible, park in a garage or behind a secure gate.

If you must park in an unsecured area: 

  • make sure the area is well lit
  • turn your wheels at an angle
  • keep an eye out -- and if you see something, say something! Call 9-1-1 to report a crime in progress.  

If you find that you are the victim of this, or any other type of crime, it is important to report it to the Lakewood Sheriff’s Station 24-hour business line at 562-623-3500. Remember, reporting crime is the only way for law enforcement to track criminal activity and find those responsible.
