Thieves went to work on a car in South Yarmouth, jacking it up and removing the alloys.

Police are appealing after a blue Subaru, parked in the car park off Mariners Road, was jacked up using car jacks on each side and had both its offside alloy wheels removed, between 4pm on Monday, October 15 and 8am on Tuesday, October 16.

Bricks were then been placed under the brake discs where the wheels have been removed to support the car. The nearside rear wheel was also loosened.

The thieves may have been disturbed as the jacks were still in place when the theft was discovered and the removed wheels were recovered near the car.

Contact PC Bob Fossey at South Yarmouth on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.


  • "Thieves jack up car and steal alloys in Yarmouth" ---No they did not, they may have tried to steal them but what they actually did was take off two wheels leave them near the car and leave the owner of the car a couple of car jacks!

  • where were the special key sockets kept that are usually required to remove alloy wheels.? as one nut on each wheel is normally impossible to remove without this special socket.
