A Myrtle Beach car dealership employee reported to police that five cars on his lot were stripped of their tires and rims overnight.
Officers were called about 9 a.m. on Monday to a car dealership at 601 Seaboard St. where a 39-year-old employee reported the incident, according to a police report.
The victim told police that he left the car lot about 3 p.m. Sunday, and when he arrived to work the next morning, he noticed that five of his cars were on cement blocks and their tires and rims were gone.
The victim told authorities that the rims stolen totaled to $8,100 and that some of the cars had about $300 worth of damages due to the theft.
Officers were able to obtain surveillance footage from a neighboring business, which showed three men rolling the tires to the backside of the lot at about 1:30 a.m. The footage also showed two sport utility vehicles drive from Seaboard Street to the backside of the lot. The three unknown suspects then loaded the tires into the SUVs and left the scene, according to the report.
Police have obtained a copy of the surveillance footage and are still investigating the incident. No arrests had been made as of Tuesday morning.
