NYPD warns of rim and tire thefts

The 104th Precinct is warning residents about thefts of vehicle rims and tires.

Although community members may not be in their cars as much during the COVID-19 pandemic, residents should still check their cars daily.

Rims and tires are being targeted, especially Honda, Nissan and Toyota models, according to the NYPD.

The police department is offering tips including activating any security devices, using a garage and parking your car in a well-lit area.

Car owners can also turn their wheels when parking, making them difficult to remove.
