Thieves Steal Tires from Cars at Wethersfield Apartments

Wethersfield Police are searching for whomever is stealing tires from cars at The Village at Wethersfield apartments in recent weeks.

Zachary Cohen learned that someone stole the four tires from his car on Christmas Eve, when he walked outside.

“Went downstairs and found it collapsed on the milk crates -- flat on the ground with milk crates, with pretty significant damage," Cohen said.

The burglars did about $7,000 worth of damage to his Infinity.

“It’s really disconcerting. You know, you’re kind of afraid. You go to sleep every night and expect (it) to be OK where you leave it,” he said.

Wethersfield Police said tires from another car were stolen the same day.

On Jan. 3, the right side rims and tires were removed from two cars and the vehicles were left on a milk crate and a plastic tray.

“It’s sometimes difficult for the police to detect because, if you pull into the parking lot, they see you. They hide or run. Sometimes you just don’t see them," Lt. Andrew Power, of the Wethersfield Police Department, said.

“It’s almost, you know, once a week or twice a week and it really makes the residents unsteady and uneasy about where they live,” Cathy Topping said.

If you have any information, you're asked to call police.
