A Lakeview resident reported on Reddit Monday night that they've seen three of these cars in "the past few weeks propped up on milk crates with all 4 wheels gone in the lakeview/ roscoe village area. I've also seen 2 people complain of these thefts on facebook."
Hi a toyota prius and a honda fit had their 4 wheels/tires stolen sometime on November 17/18th...on 507 and 506 West Briar, Chicago, 60657. Called police and they said not enough police to look into this matter, but it has been happening for a while now...If you look closely at that top picture, you'll see that both cars are missing their wheels. Classy!
Why? According to Arlington Now,
The Honda Fit Sport model is in demand because its 15-inch allow wheels fit low-riding cars customized for street racing. They also fetch high prices on the illegal car parts market.
