Watch out for wheel/tire thieves - Bay Area

Scary..

About 10 mins ago, police officer knocked on my door and asking if I own a BMW M3, they recently caught wheel theieves and found a wanted list (those bastards are in jail now!!)

Guess what, my HRE P43 was on their list too!!

I've been told that they had a huge list for all over the bay,

Guys, if you have aftermarket wheels on your M3, make sure you have wheel locks on it, and park secured place only!

wow...glad they got caught before jacking your wheels...

Im sure wheel locks are not of much help against those pro-thieves. If they have wanted list, that means they have been tracking you and your locations. Im sure they are prepared for whatever locks you have.

Any idea what else was on the list?
Pretty sure my Hamanns are just jacked enough from the PO to keep thieves away.

Yeah, since I moved here each of my cars has been hit in the parking lot at the apartment. It sucks that we cannot have nice things. Makes me rethink my wheel choices for the E90.
