"Heartless tire bandits broke a young girl's heart Tuesday when she discovered the theft of all four tires from her new Honda. Working silently just yards from her building on 52nd Street near Skillman, the thieves did their dirty work without detection and fled, leaving garbage bags to cushion the chassis.
Tire theft and other forms of auto burglary in Woodside and Sunnyside are just one of the latest signs of hard times hitting our normally crime-free neighborhoods while we sleep. Uh, hello 108?"
