FAIRFIELD, Conn. -- Two brand-new Lexus automobiles were found propped up on rocks after someone stole their tires and rims at a storage facility on Kings Highway Cutoff, the service manager told Fairfield police.
The tires and rims were stolen sometime overnight Wednesday, police said.
The manager said the cars at the storage facility were awaiting preparations to be sent to the dealership to be sold.
The Lexus storage facility on Kings Highway Cutoff is adjacent to I-95, police said, and would have provided an easy getaway.
The two vehicles were propped on rocks when found by the manager, with the stolen tires and rims valued at $10,000.
