Imagine heading off to work to find your car propped up on milk crates and all four tires gone? It happened Thursday morning to Southie resident and local hottie Kate Burke. That’s no way to start your day!
She was told by police that this is happening frequently around our good city of Southie. So what can you do?
Aside from standing watch over you car all night, you can do a few simple preventive actions. One simple trick is to keep your wheels slightly turned – we hear it’s harder to remove wheels that are turned. The other is a device called wheel locks that makes it nearly impossible to remove wheels – ask your local mechanic about them.
And for heaven’s sake, if you see someone in the act of stealing tires, call the police. Create a neighborhood watch. Be like McGruff and take a bite outta crime!
