Police in Chicago are investigating the theft of lug nuts from squad cars which were sitting in a police station parking lot on the city’s Southwest Side.
The lug nuts first began disappearing about a week ago.
No officers have been involved in road accidents because of the apparent vandalism, police said.
“It’s not funny,” one Morgan Park District officer said Saturday. “You could lose control and run into a building or a person or another car.”
No suspects had been identified, but officers also discovered a concrete slab in the Morgan Park District police parking lot painted with an anarchy symbol.
