Police are finding it more difficult to chase anybody in one Mississippi city: The wheels on their cruisers are being stolen. Three police cars had to be towed last weekend after wheels were taken, a Jackson police spokesman said, per WTVY. The cars were parked behind a police museum downtown at the time of the crime. This has happened before: A cruiser parked at the police academy last month lost its tires and wheels, per the Clarion Ledger, and a photo was posted on Facebook of the rimless car. (Thieves drove off with an entire tiny house.)
