A few months back, I wrote a story about how all of these Cadillac Escalades were having their rims and tires stolen in the middle of the night in Highland Park. HPDPS suggested motion-sensor lights to ward off the thieves, or locking lug nuts. The crimes continue, though, and it seems the thieves have gotten savvier.
From Friday’s police blotter:
Between 4 p.m. March 4 and 8 a.m. March 5, a thief stole all the rims and tires off a black 2010 Cadillac Escalade in the 4600 block of Southern Avenue. The vehicle had locking lug nuts on each rim, but the thief managed to steal all four nonetheless. The theft is valued at $7,600.
So, maybe look into getting a Chevy Yukon? Wait, no, burglars break in and steal the third-row seats. Maybe a rickshaw? Would that be safer?
