According to Automotive News, thieves broke in and stole more than $200,000 worth of wheels and tires off 48 new vehicles at a dealership in Tyler, Texas, last weekend.

Tyler Police Department Public Information Officer Don Martin said the incident occurred around 1 a.m. Sunday at Peltier Chevrolet.

“They cut the locks on the gates to the rear where all the inventory stock was kept,” Martin said.

He noted that the thieves also defeated the light system, knocking out the large bright lights that are typically on.

Surveillance video shows a large box truck arriving at 1:22 a.m., but because it was so dark, police aren’t sure how many suspects were involved.

Martin said the thieves spent “probably a good four hours” stealing the wheels and tires.
