More than $35,000 in tires and wheels were stolen Tuesday morning from multiple vehicles sitting in a parking lot.
At around 7:55 a.m., officers were called to a theft at Rush Truck Center in the 3200 block of South I-35. Officials believe during the night, thieves took tires and wheels off of five trucks that were parked on the lot of the business.
