Watch Your Wheels

Lowell Police are urging everyone to keep an eye out for suspicious activity, particularly in the overnight hours, because 11 cars across the city have had their tires and rims removed by thieves since Oct. 29.

The thieves have hit in all neighborhoods, and appear to target Hondas and Acuras. So far they’ve hit 8 Hondas, and 3 Acuras, according to Capt. Randall Humphrey. I think one of my neighbors got hit. I noticed one of the family’s cars in the driveway this week with no tires or rims.

Humphrey said the thieves usually strike between 2 and 5:30 a.m.

“Police are asking the citizens of Lowell to be extra vigilant in protecting their vehicles,” Humphrey wrote.

Anyone with information is asked to call Lowell police at 978-937-3200 or Crimestoppers at 978-459-TIPS (8477). Information can also be sent to police via Text-a-Tip, by texting TIP411 (847411) with the subject “LPDTIP.”
Tipsters can remain anonymous, but can receive up to $1,000 for information leading to an arrest.

  1. There has been a lot of stealing going around since the summer. Not just hondas and acuras. My friend’s STI got broken into this past summer. And an extra motor I had in my backyard was also stolen this past summer. Since Summer of 2011, I have noticed my friends and their friends/families cars have either been broken into, stolen, or damaged. & it’s not over a matter of months either.. Its been happening EVERY WEEK since then.

  2. Not just Lowell. We are in Dracut, happened to us twice already. Cops really don’t care. We have had to replace our tires and rims twice in two years.
