About this Article

When Arlington Heights police took a report of stolen tires at a local car dealership last fall, they had no idea it would lead to a massive illegal business with stolen property from the whole region -- but that's exactly what investigators uncovered last week. So far two men have been charged with theft after police recovered more than 1,100 tires and 200 rims in the backyard of a Chicago home.
