Camaros Victim of Huge Dealership Wheels and Tires Heist

These poor Camaros were part of a huge wheels heist at a dealership in Tyler, Texas. More than $200,000 worth of wheels and tires were stolen off 48 new cars in one single heist.

According to Autonews, Tyler Police Department Public Information Officer Don Martin said the incident occurred around 1 a.m. Sunday at Peltier Chevrolet.

“They cut the locks on the gates to the rear where all the inventory stock was kept,” Martin said.

He noted that the thieves also defeated the light system, knocking out the large bright lights that are typically on.

Martin said the thieves spent “probably a good four hours” stealing the wheels and tires.
