Update: A previous version identified Boca Center as Town Center Mall. We regret the error.
BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The bizarre yet apparently profitable theft of tires and rims from cars in Boca Raton continues to be a problem. We've reported on several tire and rim thefts — often in the area of Northwest Corporate Center Drive (near Houston's).
Now there has been another. This time at Boca Center — in the Marriott parking lot.
Police say the owner of a Dodge Charger emerged from the mall in the early evening to find his car on cinder blocks and his wheels missing. Incredibly, the victim had just purchased new rims and tires for his Charger because he was the victim of an identical theft two months ago, in another part of Boca.
No arrests in this case.
