Wheels and Tires Stolen from Car at Moon Township Dealership

Police said the new 2014 was recently placed on the car lot.

Moon police recently handled several thefts involving vehicles in the township, including a report of tires stripped from a new vehicle.

Police said someone stole all four wheels and tires from an unregistered 2014 Volkswagen Jetta parked on the Target Auto Sales lot at 5252 University Boulevard.

A service manager at Day Apollo Inc., which owns the lot, called police at 2:30 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 21 to report the thefts after workers moving vehicles noticed the wheels and tires missing from the gray, four-door car. 

Police said the vehicle was just placed on the lot Aug. 17.  The wheels are worth $425 each and the tires are valued at $150 each, police said.

Police also received reports from residents of overnight thefts from vehicles. Police said $452 was stolen sometime overnight Monday, Aug. 19 from a vehicle on Hunters Run Drive. The victim had just received the money as a payment and had it stored in the center console. The vehicle was left unlocked, police said.

Someone also went into an unlocked vehicle overnight Tuesday, Aug. 20 and took a woman’s red Coach wallet containing $7, a driver’s license and credit cards.  

A third vehicle was also broken into overnight Aug. 20 in the 2700 block of Beaver Grade Road where someone took $10 in change from the car.

Why should it be necessary to lock a car? I don't lock my car in my driveway, etc., that doesn't make me or anyone else a dum dum. You show your ignorance by characterizing what you don't agree with in such disrespectful language. If your son stole an unlocked car would it be the fault of the person who left their car unlocked??? I think not...
