WINDSOR LOCKS, Conn. — A months-long investigation into a rash of car tire and rim thefts in Windsor Locks led to the arrest of two Hartford men.
Windsor Locks police said they had been looking for a white Toyota Highlander which they said was involved in several tire and rim thefts in the area of Route 75.

Police said a Nissan missing four rims and tires was reported at the Fairfield Inn & Suites hotel.
Both men were arrested and charged with larceny in the fourth degree and conspiracy to commit larceny in the fourth degree.
