‘Slightly unusual’: Wheels stolen from multiple cars in Davis over the weekend, say police – KCRA Sacramento | CarTailz

According to the Davis Police Department, several cars in the city of Davis were found by their owners without wheels and tires over the weekend. Davis Police said six cars had their wheels and tires stripped between Friday night and Sunday night, Lt. Police Department officer Dan Beckwith said there are many similarities between the cars at the heart of every theft. “All six were parked in public places, either on the street or in apartment complex lots,” Beckwith said. “All vehicles were reported to have been abandoned on bricks or cinder blocks.” Beckwith also said all the cars were either Honda or Toyota sedans. Davis resident Jordan Bell said he woke up Monday morning to find his Toyota Corolla was missing wheels and tires. He said it was surprising to see some key components missing, especially as he stuck to his normal routine. “Since I’ve had this new one for about two years, I pretty much always park here on the street and in the port. We haven’t had any problems,” Bell said. Bell said it would cost an estimated $3,000 to replace all the stolen parts. Though his insurance would cover most of the bill, Bell would still have to pay around $500. As a UC Davis graduate student participating in a strike against low wages, Bell said these unexpected costs are a hard pill right now. “We’re not paid well enough to handle these kinds of expenses,” Bell said. “I’m surviving on the income I have — barely — so if someone comes and takes all your wheels, which is going to cost you quite a lot to get it back, you just don’t have it.” As KCRA 3, Davis asked police if The six robberies this weekend were part of a bigger trend in Davis, Beckwith said: “We’ve had 14 cases since January of this year so a lot of that happened this weekend so I wouldn’t say it was a bigger trend that I do.” know.” But the lieutenant added that six of those 14 cases are unusual in a short space of time. Although the six most recent cases are very similar, police are still unsure whether the same person or group of people is responsible for the thefts, according to Beckwith. He said officers would follow up on each victim for more details. There is also no known suspicious information.

When KCRA 3 asked Davis Police Department if the six robberies this weekend were part of a larger trend in Davis, Beckwith said, “We’ve had 14 cases since January of this year, so a majority of that happened this weekend, so I would.” I can’t say it was a bigger trend that I know of.”
