Last spring we reported on Honda tire bandit(s), and now the trend seems to have resurfaced in the neighborhood. Center Square Journal reader Chris Keller, who parks his Honda Fit on West Pensascola Avenue between Damen and Hoyne, was recently a victim of this crime.
“As I was trying to put the car up on some wooden blocks, someone driving by said the same thing has happened about three times in the past week in this area… He seemed to think little Hondas were the target,” Keller told CSJ.
We contacted the 19th District CAPS office, but the officer on hand could not confirm that this has become a trend. Keller placed a call to the office of Ald. Eugene Schulter (47th) and was told that this was the fourth related incident the office had heard of since the weekend.
Have any other CSJ readers who drive Hondas had their tires stolen? Let us know.
