A group of tire and rim thieves have a taste for fancy wheels.
On Tuesday, thieves struck three cars in Hunters Point—an Audi, BMW and Porsche–striping their tires and rims off and leaving their vehicles on blocks.
The police have caught a suspect—after discovering the tires of the Porsche in his car. The Porsche’s tires were removed while it was parked at 5-22 46th Road., according to police. However, the police did not provide much in the way of details since the alleged perpetrator’s records have been sealed.
The BMW was parked on 51st Avenue (btwn. Vernon Blvd and 5th Street) across the street from LIC Living. A reader sent in a photo (see above) of the vehicle on blocks.
The Audi was parked on 46th Road between Vernon Blvd and 5th Street, according to a reader who sent in the photo.
