A car parked on the corner of Albany Ave. and Carroll St. was the latest victim of the wheel thieves, who are operating with impunity and devastating vehicle owners all over Crown Heights.
These brazen thefts have been occurring on a regular basis and will continue until the thieves are caught. The targeted cars have been mostly new and in the upper range, though some older and cheaper vehicles have fallen victim as well.
In the meantime, be sure to protect your vehicle in as many ways as possible so you do not become a victim. Anti-theft lug nuts and car tilt alarms are two examples of relatively simple safety measures that can be added to a vehicle.
Remember, even if an added security measure isn’t 100% foolproof, it will still likely deter thieves from targeting your car and cause them to move on to an easier target.
