After a few false alarms with police checking the Nissan lot at Kennicott Avene and Dundee Road several times, Thursday January 24, 2013 proved to be a productive night for the law enforcement agency.

A tire and wheel fitted with a GPS device began to move, which alerted the police to the movement. Police followed the GPS signal at it was displayed on a Google map. The device is distributed by a security company that provides security for fleet managers.

The device marker was followed as it moved on the map into Chicago to the location at the 5206 South Winchester Avenue address.

Detectives executed a search warrant at the address and discovered approximately 1100 tires and approximately 210 rims in the yard, garage and basement of the home. The value of the recovered property is estimated to be in excess of $300.000. It appears the home was used for the delivery, dismantling and preparation of the tires for sale. Nine tires removed from the Arlington Nissan lot that night were discovered in the yard. Police also found the two suspects, who were arrested.
