Patrol Seeking Information On Those Who Tampered With Patrol Vehicles

This past weekend, some of our troopers discovered missing or loose lug nuts on their patrol vehicles. On two particular vehicles, all lug nuts were loose or missing on all four of the tires. On one specific vehicle, one tire had two lug nuts totally removed, three were within two turns of coming off, and the other was within a few turns of coming off. The loosening of the lug nuts occurred while they were parked at the Kansas Highway Patrol Training Academy on Iron Avenue in Salina, sometime between Monday, April 20 and Friday, April 24. The investigation into these incidents is underway by the Salina Police Department.

The Kansas Highway Patrol is seeking any information about these incidents, and would encourage the public to contact us at 785-296-6800, with any information you might have. Any information could be helpful.

The Patrol also encourages our partners—other law enforcement agencies across the state—to be mindful of inspecting their vehicles daily as you work in support of your communities.
