Crown Heights [CHI] — Last week, a number of cars were ‘hit’ in the Crown Heights neighborhood, with thieves making off with all four of their tires. One of the incidents was witnessed by a resident, who immidiately contacted the police, but the thieves were too quick and the cops too slow: by the time they arrived the thieves, and all four of the car’s tires, were gone.
A car mechanic told Crownheights.info that the value of the tires (and thus, the cost to replace them) can reach a few thousand dollars. He added that a cheap and inexpensive way to protect one’s tires is to buy wheel locks.
As you can see in the photos, one of the burglaries occurred right in front of the Rebbe’s house on President St!
