A Joshua Tree single mother is pretty upset after her tires and rims were stolen off her car Sunday night. Sometime between 6:30 p.m. Sunday and 8 a.m. Monday morning, someone stole the tires and 17-inch Toro rims off Autumn Nulanz’s 2007 Chevy Aveo, parked in front of her home in the 6200 block of Verbena Road in Joshua Tree, and then left her car up on blocks.
Nulanz said she uses her car to drive back and forth to her job as manager at the Yucca Valley McDonald’s, and to drive her two children places. Nulanz values her tires and rims at $2,000. Sheriff’s Sergeant Derek Garvin said it was an unusual theft and that her neighborhood generally doesn’t see a lot of crime. Anyone with information should call the Sheriff’s Department at 760-366-4175.
