ALBANY, GA (WALB) - One Albany car dealership is out thousands of dollars after someone stole tires off one of its cars. This isn't the first time it's happened.

Staff at Prince Chevrolet are fed up with the thefts, and they're asking for help from police and neighbors to keep an eye out for those thieves.

Staff at Prince Chevrolet say someone snagged all four tires and rims from this 2011 Tahoe sometime before they opened Friday.  

They've gotten away with stealing at least 12 cars and 12 tires in the past year and a half.

They say it looks like a professional job. From a distance, it's the same height as these other cars. When the GM made his daily drive around the parking lot, he saw these tires were gone but the car was sitting on cinder blocks.

Police brushed for fingerprints, but have no suspects.

Salesman Joel Figueroa says these thefts are not only expensive, they're irritating.

"It's continuous, said Figueroa. "Most customers feel weird when they come in a see something like that. We have to lock them up and get them out of sight."

Neighbors have been warned of the thefts. Employees will continue to lock up what cars they can to discourage this vehicle bandits from coming back.

Those thieves did $4,000 dollars in damage. Prince Chevrolet says it's had problems on south Sappy ever since it opened .

It hopes to move to it's new lee county location off Ledo road next August.

If you have any information leading to arrests in this theft contact crimes stoppers at (229)436-TIPS.
