SALISBURY — Police are looking into the theft of three tires from a pickup truck at Cloninger Ford after a security video showed someone “casing” the automotive dealership before removing the tires, said a police spokesman.

The incident was discovered Sunday at the business, located at 511 S. Jake Alexander Blvd., and is believed to have occurred just before 8 a.m. The person can be seen using a jack to raise an F-150. It’s believed the person who took three of the four tires may have gotten spooked, said Salisbury police spokesman Lt. Lee Walker.

He said the same person was spotted on video before the theft occurred. The investigation continues.
