Thieves went to a lot of trouble to steal 26 big rig tires, according to Jonesboro police.
Monday morning officers were called to Arkansas Trailers, 8421 C.W. Post Rd., regarding a theft that had occurred sometime over the weekend.
The general manager told police someone stole 26 Bridgestone 18-wheeler tires off of trailers parked in a lot behind the business. He estimated the value of the tires at $11,700.
The manager said the suspects had to have used an air compressor and impact wrench to remove the tires, according to the initial police report.
During the investigation, officers learned a 2006 Freightliner tractor truck valued at $25,000 was also stolen from the lot.
The truck, which belongs to F&S Logistics, has Arkansas license plate number K777369, DOT #1901780.
