Huber Heights, OH – Police in Ohio are asking for the public’s help in identifying multiple suspects believed to have stolen more than $50,000 worth of semi-truck tires shortly before Christmas.
According to Huber Heights Police (HHP), on December 22, 2019 multiple suspects burglarized the Kenworth of Dayton located at 7740 Centerpoint 70 Blvd.
