140 Wheels Stolen from Rockwall Dealership

Posted in Pictures, Video, Commercials, Media, Uncategorized by wolferadio11 on July 26, 2011

 Wheels and tires were stolen off 35 cars from a dealership in Rockwall, Texas, police say. The Rockwall Police Department alerted Robert Bobo, the owner of Heritage Buick GMC, to the burglary Sunday morning, KXAS-TV reported. The vehicles, Yukons and pickup trucks, were found on cinder blocks, their 20-inch tires and wheels missing. Bobo explained that dealerships occasionally fall victim to burglary, but the theft he sustained at his lot was unheard of. “Dealerships deal with minor incidences frequently. I’ve been in the car business over 20 years and I’ve never heard of a theft of this magnitude,” said Bobo. “The police indicated to me that they have never had a report of a theft of this many tires/wheels at one location.” Bobo said he is offering a reward for information leading to the arrest of the culprits.

    That’s crazy. I work at a dealership in South Dakota and we have a set stolen now and then but nothing like that. What did the person bring a Semi truck or something? How could they even fit that many sets at once. Did they ever find who did it?
