Truck drivers in north Texas are being urged be on alert and aware of their surroundings.

“A well-organized group of thieves have made off with dozens of tire/wheel assemblies – in broad daylight, right off of their vehicles,” Tire Review reported.

Fort Worth police are investigating the recent string of thefts.  Surveillance footage of a recent theft shows a group of men, driving a pickup, pull up to a truck and remove all eight tire and wheel assemblies, load them into the pickup and drive off.

“These criminals are very brazen to do this in broad daylight,” John Pope with Muirhead Trucking in Mabank, Texas told My Fox Dallas Fort Worth. “It’s starting to become a regular occurrence. One guy may be hit one time a year, but pull everybody together and it’s a weekly deal.”

Police say the group of thieves are well organized and their now spreading their efforts around the area.

“It’s starting to become a regular occurrence. One guy may be hit one time a year, but pull everybody together and it’s a weekly deal,” Pope told My Fox Dallas Fort Worth.
