ARAPAHOE COUNTY - The Arapahoe County Sherriff's Office is looking for tire thieves who are targeting a certain make and model.

Investigators say the thief or thieves are stealing the spare tires from Dodge Ram trucks. Fasteners are being cut to release the tires from underneath the trucks.

In most cases, the victims don't immediately notice their spare tire is gone.

The thefts are occurring in driveways or on residential streets in the northeast metro area, near E-470 and East Smokey Hill Road.

According to auto experts, thieves may target tires because they're easy to remove and are nearly untraceable.
