Georgetown auto dealer robbed of $100K worth of tires, rims

Posted: Updated:

Thieves hit a local car dealership, stealing $100,000 worth of tires and rims off of high-end cars.

Georgetown police say thieves hit 48 high-end cars on the lot at Mac Haik Ford and Lincoln just off I-35, stealing all four tires and rims off each vehicle and leaving the cars sitting on blocks. They say this happened sometime Saturday night into Sunday morning.

Officers tell us the vehicles that were hit are on the backside of the lot, where the lighting is poor and there is little to none when it comes to pedestrian and vehicle traffic. There are also no security cameras. So at this time police have no leads.

They are asking for the public's help. In the mean time they aren't ruling anything out including the possibility that this could've been an inside job.

"If I was a business owner that would certainly be one of the first things that I would consider. Have we released somebody lately? Does somebody have an issue with us? Police officers certainly ask that question also. So the car dealership is looking through some of their records," said GPD Cpt. Rolands.

Police are asking local pawn shops to be on the lookout for anyone trying to pawn a large number of new wheels and tires. If anyone has information about this incident contact Georgetown police at 512-930-3510.
