Farmington Hills Police Investigate Tire Thefts
A resident of Muirwood Enclave Apartments is among a number of vehicle owners who have had the wheels taken out from under them.
Farmington Hills Police are investigating the theft of tires from three high-end vehicles during the past week, including four taken from a 2013 Ford Taurus SHO (Super High Output) owned by a resident of Muirwood Enclave Apartments near Grand River and Drake.
Aaron Johnson said he found his vehicle sitting on standard masonry bricks on Wednesday morning. Thieves broke the car's driver side rear window to get at the key for the wheel lock, an anti-theft device. They hit two other cars in the same lot, Johnson said.
Thieves had to roll a boulder underneath one of the other cars, because they ran out of bricks, he added.
The Oakland Press reported Friday that Troy Police are also investigating similar thefts that took place Monday night and Tuesday. The newspaper reported that two men in dark clothing who were seen driving a black Ford F-150 truck are suspects in the crimes.
Other vehicles struck included a 2005 Chrysler 300 and a 2011 Cadillac CTS in Farmington Hills, and a 2013 Buick Lacrosse from a car dealership and a privately owned 2012 Chrysler 300 in Troy, according to The Oakland Press.
