WESTON, FLA. (WSVN) - - Several residents of a Weston apartment complex woke up to find all four wheels and tires stolen from their vehicles.

Entire wheels were stolen from at least four vehicles at the Weston Place Apartment Homes on Post Road, early Thursday morning.

“The police knocked on my door, and [they said], ‘Is that your car?’ Take a look what happened,” said victim Andre Peluso.

The thief or thieves left the cars on blocks. They left nothing behind except the lug nuts in one case.

The vehicles targeted were all Toyota Corollas except for one Honda.

Peluso said this is a case of supply and demand.

“They stole it because someone buys from them,” he said. “It’s a lot of money. That’s why they do it.”

“I’m so mad. I can’t believe things like this happen here,” said victim Corina Cordova.

Cordova said she discovered her car propped up with the wheels missing, Thursday morning.

“I spent the whole day calling the insurance and the police and everything to get it fixed,” said Cordova.

The news of the theft prompted resident Sofia Corennano to check on her own vehicle, which turned out to be OK.

“Honestly, it’s surprising that we’re living like this in here. That you left a car without tires is incredible,” she said.

A resident at the Welleby Lake Club Apartments in Sunrise told 7News the same thing happened to their car a few days ago.

In the last several weeks, drivers in some Broward neighborhoods have seen their air bags and owner’s manuals snatched and their windows shattered.

When asked if he has a message for those responsible for the thefts, Peluso replied, “Well, what can I say? I mean, go find a job.”

The victims targeted in Weston said it’s going to cost them hundreds of dollars, perhaps thousands, to have their wheels and tires replaced.

If you have any information on any of these thefts, call Broward County Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS. Remember, you can always remain anonymous, and you may be eligible for a $3,000 reward.
