    Last night thieves stole the wheels/tires off my truck while it was parked in my driveway. If anyone has a camera pointed at Ridgeway Drive between Mill Run and Claiborne Pkwy, please review the footage for last night (10/29-10/30) and see if you see a suspicious van or truck in the middle of the night.

    Loudoun County Sheriff has contacted several neighbors who have obvious cameras and is reviewing the footage, but any additional footage would be appreciated.

    Ouch! This kind of stuff burns me up. Custom or Stock Wheels? ...and did you have wheel locks on them?

    Wow, I noticed that a few times in the police releases over a few months but thought never here.

    We are North Broadlands, but will check cameras.

    Sheriff says its happening all over Ashburn and the GMC dealer said I wasn't the first to inquire about rims recently. They are stock rims but highest (non-denali) ones. Replacement cost is $650 each not include tires, sensors or install. Its an inviting pay day for thieves.

    This is really terrible. We report suspicious vehicles to the police when we see them. Good luck and I hope the thieves get caught.

    For those looking for a decent night vision camera to overlook the driveway the Hikvision DS-2CD2132F-IS ($140 Amazon) can be installed with minimal effort. Even if you have wheel locks getting video of the thieves inspecting the vehicle would help the police. I'd be more than happy to provide details on installing these types of cameras if anyone is interested, its really not that difficult or expensive.

    Perhaps these thieves should consider making an honest living as members of a NASCAR pit crew. I'm quite certain it pays better.

    The fact that they're able to do this so quickly in rather dense neighborhoods without being detected is incredible. It would take me several hours and a lot of loud cursing to do what they do. I realize they're likely working in teams, but it still amazes me that they've been able to do this twice with apparently no one witnessing it or hearing it.

    Sorry for those affected. I know it stinks. Hope they catch these crooks soon.

    Look to the tire professionals. They have the knowhow and the tools. Is it a coincidence that this has become a problem now that we have new tire stores in area? Just saying...

    I hear it's pretty easy to steal tires/rims. They put the cinder blocks under the axles, release air from the tires so that the vehicle comes to rest on the blicks, unscrew the lug nuts, pull the tire off--and off they go...#%¥!!!

    Nope--no locks. Stock wheels but still about $4000. New ones will have locks!

    Hornerjo,
    Does the camera self record on Sd card or is it tied into another recorder? What is the lense you are using and does it also have the ability to connect to your iPhone?

    It can record to the sd card or you can set up a file server for it. I have an older model that doesn't have an sd card, its recording to a Western Digital $140 2TB MyCloud drive. The lens on all these cameras are fixed. They all can be viewed on any mobile device with a wide variety of apps. The camera can send out several different streams such as a low quality stream for mobile viewing.
