Two men were arrested early Saturday morning after officers interrupted them stealing the tires and rims off a car in North Babylon, Suffolk County police said.
Police said they received a call from a North Babylon resident that three men appeared to be taking car parts from a 2015 Toyota Corolla parked in the snow in the 20 block of Victoria Road. At about 2:30 a.m., a Suffolk County officer arrived and stopped two of the men, who police said were stealing the rims and tires. The third man ran off, police said.
