When my daughter was leaving for work this AM she discovered that all for wheels had been stolen from her car. Yep all four! . Fortunately they have another vehicle. but what a way to start the week!!!
My son in law had to miss a day of work to take care of things calling police,the insurance Co. having the car towed etc.
Apparently there has been a rash of thefts of wheels from Toyotas and Hondas throughout the city
The only bright spot is that they have good insurance.
Shaken my head

RE: Stolen

Nana, what a terrible way to start the week off for the kids.
Hope they catch those dirty little thieves! Don't know why
people choose to steal. Oh well, judgement day will come.

Our DS had this same thing happen last fall on my dad's
truck he now owns. The tires weren't that good but it had
fancy wheels they wanted we figure. Funny thing was they
blocked it up with wood that came from their saw mill a 1/4
mile away so we knew who did it. DS couldn't prove it but
they left evidence so end of that story. They could see the
folks place every day from work so they knew no one was
living there.

I do feel as times get tougher more of this will be taking
place.sigh Hope this isn't a bad thing for our new insurance
company we've only had for a year.hmmm


RE: Stolen

That's awful. Thank goodness for their insurance, and hopefully somehow the police will find whoever is doing this.
What a way to begin a week, but hopefully things can only improve after this start!!!

hugs, Karen

RE: Stolen

I awful...a terrible way to start the week.
I'm glad they have good help with all the expense.
But with all the stress that goes with it...that's something else..

RE: Stolen

Wow, I am sorry to hear about this! What a terrible way to start your day. Hope they are able to get back on the road soon.

RE: Stolen

That's terrible. I'm so thankful to have a locked garage at my current house after years of shared parking. I feel so much safer.

RE: Stolen

Thank you everyone.
Their insurance is paying for a rental while the dealer is locating rims, they have to get ones that are original to their car in order for the insurance to pay.
At least they can get to work etc.

RE: Stolen

What a bummer!!

Glad they had insurance, but speaking from experience, dealing with the insurance company and getting replacements for stolen items is a PITA!!


RE: Stolen

When we had someone break into our house, the police told us that they probably wouldn't be able to do anything. You always see people in the movies leaving fingerprints or something and the police get them right away. But that's not as common as we'd like to think.

My children were small at the time and started to have nightmares. Luckily, that passed pretty quickly. Insurance companies can often be difficult to deal with, but at least they have coverage. I hope their lives return to normal quickly.

RE: Stolen

Thank you Candy and OA so far they haven't had any problems with the Insurance Co.
Our house was broken into some years ago too. It was very stressful, no finger prints were taken here either.

RE: Stolen

RE: Stolen
