Tire Bandits Strike Again in Tysons

The thieves behind a series of wheel larcenies seem to have struck again.

According to a police recap from yesterday (Tuesday), the tires and rims were stolen from a vehicle parked at the 1500 block of West Branch Drive.

This is the sixth car to have its wheels stolen in Tysons since February. It’s the third vehicle hit in the 1500 block of West Branch Drive.

All but one of the robberies has taken place within the Mile, 40-acre stretch of buildings northeast of Tysons Galleria currently under consideration for redevelopment.

The recap also notes that a bird was stolen from a business on the 7200 block of Lee Highway, but despite repeated phone calls to confused business owners, Tysons Reporter has been unable to find more details.
