Police are asking for the public's help finding the suspects who broke into a northeast San Antonio business and stole several tires and rims from a pair of parked 18-wheelers.

Police said the theft occurred sometime between 7:30 p.m. Monday and 7 a.m. Tuesday in the 4900 block of Emil Road.

The suspects cut a hole in a chain link security fence at the rear of the business, then stole 16 tires and rims off two 18-wheelers parked at the location.

Police said the suspects also stole a C.B. radio and two doors off an 18-wheeler truck cab.

There have been similar thefts in the southeast side of San Antonio in which the suspects leave the trailers on wooden blacks or used rims, police said.
