  • Thieves strip wheels from truck on car lot

    It will be hard to drive one 2009 Chevrolet Avalanche off the H.A. Jones car lot.

    It has no wheels.

    “We have thefts,” said manager Yogi Brown Monday afternoon. “Every car lot has thefts.”

    When salesman Ollie Taylor went to work Monday morning, he found the Avalanche resting on concrete blocks, without wheels.

    “We’ve never had this happen,” said Brown, noting that often spare tires and radios are stolen from the vehicles.
