Some older neighborhoods just north of downtown getting hit hard by car thieves

- Lazybrook resident Ralph Bullard is installing a security camera.

"We've had somebody stealing our newspaper out of our driveway up closer to the house," Bullard saiid.

Four-legged Redford might be able to scare away the newspaper thieves, but that's not all that's being stolen from folks living in Lazybrook and Timbergrove. Vehicles or just the tires and rims.

"The thing that's concerning me is it's being reported to police officers are coming out here to do a report but I'm not seeing any extra patrols out here in the neighborhood," said a resident who asked to remain anonymous.

Like several other Timbergrove residents, Luke Fry woke up last Wednesday to find his truck looked nothing like it did the night before.

"I kind of stepped back a little bit and realized I had no tires on my truck," Fry said. "It was sitting up on paving bricks."

Residents cameras have been able to capture a possible car used in the crime spree, but so far no license plate.

Between July 26 and August 7, HPD has taken 14 reports from residents in Lazybrook and Timbergrove who had vehicles stolen or just their tires and rims
