DETROIT (WXYZ) - A teenager is now being questioned about the rims and tires that were ripped off of one of Mayor Dave Bing's vehicles.
This comes as Detroit police investigate the theft of tires and rims from vehicles chauffeuring high profile people.
The GMC Yukon Denali used to drive Mayor Bing around was found parked at the Shoreline East Condos, resting on bricks. It was in the possession of a Third Deputy Chief in charge of the Mayor's executive protection unit. The SUV is one of the Mayor's "secondary" vehicles. It was found on East Jefferson on Tuesday night.
Two days ago a 2009 Cadillac Escalade being used by Reverend Jesse Jackson was stolen from a parking lot near the Doubletree Hotel. It was recovered on Lawton Street after business people called police. One employee tells Action News "the window was busted out and the rims were missing." He believes the rims would go for a thousand dollars on the street.
Mayor Bing's spokesperson says "It’s our hope the community will continue to support the administration's effort to communicate that any activity compromising the quality of life in Detroit is intolerable."
