Beginning in late 2012, Arlington Heights police, in cooperation with Bob Rohrman Arlington Nissan, conducted an investigation into a series of tire thefts from the dealership. The investigation culminated in January 2013 when the GPS tracking device police installed in a spare tire led them to a Chicago address in the 5200 block of Winchester Avenue. The officers set up surveillance and watched as Terry Haygood, 41, handed tires to Villarreal-Garcia.

Haygood pleaded guilty to burglary last June and was sentenced to six years in prison.
