An employee at Auto Liquidators, 1546 Gordon Highway, noticed the tires missing when he arrived at work Wednesday, according to an incident report.
He told police that weeds around the perimeter fence had been matted down, making it appear the thief drove a vehicle up to the fence to gain access. A deputy also noticed the barbed wire fencing that surrounds the lot had not been damaged.
A total of five tires were taken from a Kia Sorento, Jeep Liberty and Ford F-150. A car jack had been abandoned behind the Kia.
