Surveillance video shared with News 12 shows men stealing the wheels from a car parked inside the garage of a Bridgeport home, the homeowner says.

The homeowner, who lives in the Brooklawn section, says the incident happened overnight on Thanksgiving.

The victim says the video shows the suspects breaking into their garage and removing all four tires and rims from a car.

Police say there have been 11 similar cases in the city over the past two months. Authorities say by installing surveillance cameras, the owner helped the investigation by putting a spotlight on who's behind these crimes.

Police say several of the cases appear to be connected. They are urging anyone with information about the thefts to call 203-576-TIPS.
