Honda wheel thieves getting bolder, or faster, or both

Accord with no wheels in West Roxbury

Abner Bonilla spotted this freshly un-wheeled Accord this morning in front of the block of stores on Grove Street near Washington Street in West Roxbury, a a stretch that is hardly a remote area where wheel thieves can work without attracting much attention.

Someone nearby is also likely missing 4 expensive cobblestones, although that makes for a nice tableau.

Did the wheel thieves do the owner a favor by resting the car on stones, or did they just mess up the brake rotors?

Wheels are inter-changeable to different models and years. $20 for a set of wheel locks and those thieves will move on to the next Honda unless they find the wheel key in your glove box.

Never let anything cloud the recognition of true talent.
These guys deserve a shot on a NASCAR pit crew.

I used to live near there & saw wheels stolen from hondas in our parking lot with some regularity.

This amateur sleuth suspects the thieves dont live far from that spot.

What's the next step for the car owner here? Have someone come out with four new rims and tires? Can't put it on a flatbed like that obviously.

This was a common sight in Boston in days gone by. This 1985 Chronicle segment on the Boston Police is worth a watch for any number of reasons including the decayed city and streets. Let's not allow a return to those dismal conditions.

Hope that wasn't a bike lane.
