There are car break-ins every day in St. Louis, sometimes several on one block. Same story in many municipalities. Cars are stolen. But we're learning of several incidents of car wheels and tires being stolen and the cars left up on blocks. It has happened in Des Peres and Richmond Heights. One victim we talked to at St. Mary's Hospital said she was grateful at least it happened to her, an employee, instead of a patient or a relative.
Also, we're hearing of the theft of catalytic converters on the Target parking lot in Brentwood. It makes you afraid to park anywhere!
