$3,500 Worth of Tires and Rims Stolen From Ruge’s in Rhinebeck
It looks like someone wanted Jeep tires, but wasn't looking to pay for them. Tires and Rims were stolen from Ruge's in Rhinebeck during the holiday weekend.
Ruge's Auto has a lot on Wey Road in Rhinebeck and that is where the theft occurred. State Police in Rhinebeck say they believe the crime was committed between December 31 to January 2nd.
Four rims, tires and center caps were stolen from a 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The tire size was reported as P265/60R18.
The tires and rims will fit a Jeep Grand Cherokee from 2011 to 2017. We all know these things are not cheap and the total replacement cost for the tires and rims is $3,578.48. Unless it was a NASCAR pit crew, it must have taken some time to remove them from the Grand Cherokee. Hopefully there are surveillance cameras on the lot.
Ruge's Crysler, Dodge, Jeep has been in Rhinebeck for about 80 years. They are still at the corner of Routes 9 and 9G. Ruge's Subaru is located closer to the center of the village on Route 9.
