$25,000 Reward Offered in Slidell Tire and Wheel Theft

Slidell Police are investigating what appears to be a professional theft ring that stole over $100,000 worth of tires and rims from Matt Bowers Chevrolet this past Saturday morning (April 27, 2019). A manager discovered the tires and wheels missing off of 31 vehicles, ranging from Chevy Tahoe’s, Malibu’s, trucks, and smaller SUV’s. In all, 124 tires and wheels were stolen, totaling approximately $120,000.

SPD reports that it appears the thieves were no amateurs. They defeated locks, alarms, surveillance video, and went as far as to manipulate the exterior lights in the parking lot so they could work in the dark of the night, completely undetected. Video suggests the loot left the dealership in a U-Haul EL-17 foot truck and also suggests two of the individuals are black males.

Matt Bowers, the owner of the dealership, is offering a $25,000 reward to the person who provides information leading up to the arrest of the suspects. If the suspects are caught, half of the money will be paid upon arrest, and the other half upon conviction. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Slidell Police Department at 985-646-4347 or e-mail pio@slidellpd.com. You can remain anonymous.
