Wheel thieves strike again in La Vernia
LA VERNIA -- Police here have been warning owners of Texas Edition Chevrolet trucks to be on their guard, as another set of wheels and tires was stolen April 10.
Sgt. Danny Pitts of the La Vernia Police Department said a resident of the Westover Hills residential subdivision located off F.M. 1346 called police after finding their Texas Edition Chevrolet Suburban on blocks. All four wheels and all four tires were gone. Each rim and tire combination has an estimated value of $500, Pitts said.
La Vernia police and deputies from the Wilson County Sheriff’s Office still have no suspects in three similar incidents that occurred on Feb. 7, in which Texas Edition Chevrolet trucks also were targeted. In each incident, the owners returned to their vehicles to find the rims and tires removed.
The Texas Edition trim package is an option for Chevrolet’s full-sized trucks and sport-utility vehicles, such as the Avalanche, Silverado, Suburban, and Tahoe. It features 20-inch rims, which have attracted the attention of thieves throughout Texas, which is why officials suggest installing locking lug nuts.
Anyone with information about these incidents is urged to call the Wilson County Sheriff’s Office at 830-393-2535 or Crime Stoppers of Wilson County at 830-393-INFO (4636).
