Now a dealership was also hit.

Police said the rims and the tires were taken from seven vehicles at Merrick Dodge in Wantagh.

The estimated loss to the dealership – a whopping $26,000.

Authorities told WCBS 880 reporter Sophia Hall that it takes the crooks only about thirty seconds to steal four rims and tires from a car.

Police have no description of the suspects.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers, 800-244-8477. All calls will be kept confidential.
