Car Tire Thefts Plague North Massapequa

Police investigate five tire and rim thefts this week.

Thieves have stolen the tires and rims from five vehicles in North Massapequa since Monday, police said.

The rash of thefts began Monday when the owners of a 2010 Gray Nissan parked on North Central Avenue and a 2010 Red infinity parked on South Park Drive were stripped of their wheels. 

There were three more incidents on Wednesday as a 2011 Honda Civic and a 2011 Gray Nissan also had their tires stripped on North Park avenue. The third incident Wednesday involved a 2009 Black Infiniti parked on Spinning Wheel Road.

In all five cases, the cars were left on top of stacked bricks. 

 Police ask anyone with information about these crimes to contact Nassau County Crime Stoppers at 1-800-244-TIPS. All callers will remain anonymous.

It would helpful to know if the vehicles were equipped with locking lug nuts. And it's Infiniti.

Call the local precinct. Tell them you want the details. Say you are particularly interested in the type of nuts that secured the rims on the hubs. They will leave a message with the assigned Detective, and will call you back when he gets the chance. They might ask you your full name and address. Easy.

My husband was hit on Lakeshore road in the middle of the day..his car was totaled..he saw the person's face for an moment before the jerk nodded out and swerved into his lane. He saw the car...color and type..but he didn't get the license plate number. He was too stunned and hurt. We had many reasons to believe it was a young man in the neighborhood who is known as a drug addict with a long history of motor vehicle accidents. The detectives stopped by the guys house and can you believe it...the car was in the shop. What a surprise! We asked them to please locate the car so they could see the red paint and damage from our car. All we wanted was our car fixed, nothing more. The detective was going on vacation and told us call him back the next week. THEY DID NOTHING!!!! Perhaps more would have been done if my husband was killed, but I doubt it. Maybe they were really busy giving "being in the park after dark" tickets.
