Hutchinson police are investigating wheels stolen from dozens of vehicles at Valley Sales Chevrolet in Hutchinson, KARE 11 reports.

A total of 60 wheel-tire sets were taken from 15 new Chevrolet trucks, SUVs and one car, according to the Hutchinson Leader. All the tampered vehicles were left on paving blocks when discovered Sunday morning by an employee.
