Rim and tire thieves strike Shore Road again

68th Precinct

Bay Ridge—Dyker Heights

Curbside pickup

Another Shore Road resident was targeted by rim and tire thieves on the night of May 2, according to a police report.

The woman parked her brand-new Honda Accord — a popular target for the thieves — outside her home between 72nd and 74th streets late on May 2, and returned the next day around 8 am and found both of the curbside wheels of her car missing, police said.

The thieves left behind their jack and the locking lug nuts she had on her wheels.

Bandits stole all four rims off a different, brand-new Honda Accord parked on Dyker Place within 24 hours of the Shore Road theft, police said.

The driver parked the car near 84th Street at 5 am on May 2 and returned around 5:20 pm the next day to find the four sets of wheels missing, police said.

Counter crook

A sneaky thief stole a man’s wallet he had momentarily left on a Third Avenue restaurant counter on May 5, according to police.

The guy put down his wallet to sign the receipt for his dinner at the restaurant between 72nd and 73rd streets around 5:30 pm. He told police that he turned away for just a moment, and when he turned back, his wallet was gone.

It had credit cards, debit cards, and identification in it, but no cash, police said.
