A HIGH-performance car was stripped of its wheels by thieves who struck at a Solihull home while the owners were on holiday.
Two men broke into the Mercedes 4x4 parked in Grange Road and, after taking tools and a jack from the boot, removed all four tyres.
The wheels, from the exclusive Mercedes AMG range, are valued at around £800 each. They are 21-inch, five-spoke alloys complete with both the Mercedes 3-pointed star and AMG motifs.
It’s understood the thieves – believed to be around 5ft 8ins tall, medium build and wearing light-grey hooded tracksuits – rolled the tyres away down Grange Road following the overnight raid which took place on July 19/20.
Anyone with information about the incident – or who has been offered the distinctive wheels for sale – is urged to contact the Olton neighbourhood police team on 0345 113 5000 (ext: 7921 6943).
