Thieves roll away with stolen tires

Nanaimo RCMP rolled out an investigation to find multiple sets of stolen trucks tires and the people who took them. The theft of three sets of tires from a locked compound was discovered by a Nanaimo Fountain Tire in employee Monday.

Someone cut through the chain used to secure the compound gate and took commercial grade truck tires, 24 in all, with a value of $8,000.

“The tires are recapped for off-road commercial use on either logging trucks or dump trucks,” said Const. Gary O’Brien, Nanaimo RCMP spokesman.
