A nighttime thief struck a Watertown car dealership, stealing a dozen tires from trucks left on the lot.

Sometime on the night of Jan. 10 or early hours of Jan. 11, a thief or thieves struck Watertown Ford on Pleasant Street, said Watertown Police Lt. Michael Lawn.

“Someone stole 12 tires and rims from three trucks on the property worth $1,000 to $1,200 each,” Lawn said. “The trucks were jacked up.”

It appears the suspects parked a U-Haul truck in front of Watertown Ford and made off with the tires in the truck, Lawn said.

This is not the first time that tires were stolen from vehicles at area dealerships. Colonial GMC on Galen Street had tires and rims stolen from vehicles in October and December.
