It's been mentioned a couple of times on FrontBurner, including today: Folks wake up in the morning, only to find their car or SUV is missing all four wheels. The D boys have mentioned a few locations -- Preston Hollow, University Park, Abrams Road and Northwest Highway, Lovers Lane and Inwood Road. Turns out, it's also happening in Northwest Dallas: At midnight yesterday, someone living near Royal and Marsh Lanes reported that "unknown suspect(s) removed all four wheels from vehicle without permission," according to Daily Crime Report's police blotter round-up. For the moment, at least, police do not consider this guy a suspect. --Robert Wilonsky
