A New Haven discovered all four wheels on his 2016 Nissan Maxima had been stolen on Monday night.
"I was getting ready to go to work and my wife yelled upstairs that the wheels were gone," said Rashad Gibson.
When Gibson’s wife, Courtney Quinn, noticed the car was on crates, she said she was in shock. She walked around the car to make sure the inside was untouched.
"I kind of had to do a double-take because it was just unbelievable," said Quinn.
Neighbors told Quinn the Nissan, parked on a busy Alden Avenue, wasn’t the only car affected.
"We know at least three cars on this street were attacked and this is a major street in this neighborhood which is also why it is very surprising," Quinn said.
New Haven now joins Enfield, Wethersfield and Waterbury on a growing list of places where tires and rims have been taken over the last several months and the cost is adding up. According to Gibson, the actual price of the missing parts is around $3,000, but his wife said there is no number to put on the lost piece of mind.
"Although it wasn't a violent personal attack it was an attack on property and I hope that it is taken seriously," said Quinn.
