Thieves steal 5 cars from towing company

By Associated Press


KAILUA-KONA >> Big Island police are investigating the theft of five cars from a Kailua-Kona towing company.

West Hawaii Today reports thieves apparently cut through a chain securing a gate to a holding yard at T&T Towing.

The theft likely happened Monday night.

Office manager Kumai Obrey says tracks left after the rain stopped showed where the thieves had pushed non-operating vehicles out of the way.

Obrey says a tow truck might have been involved. One of the stolen vehicles couldn't have been driven far with bad suspension and a tire ready to fall off.

Obrey says the keys were left in the vehicles because they are frequently moved around the lot. That's why the company barricaded them with nonworking vehicles.

The stolen vehicles were being stored for an auction company.

Probably the cars belonged to the thieves and they were only retrieving what they believe is theirs?

Exactly. No honor here. Word is tow truck drivers stole them back due to the company failing to pay their wages.

Someone went through the trouble of stealing a car with bad suspension and a tire about to fall off. These cars are obviously on their way to a chop shop.
