      Arkansas thieves steal big rig, 26 truck tires

      JONESBORO, Ark. (AP) - Police in Jonesboro say a tractor rig is missing from a business and that the thieves also stole 26 big-rig tires.

      Officers were summoned Monday morning to Arkansas Trailers on C.W. Post road about the theft, which occurred over the weekend.

      The manager says the tires were worth $11,700 and the 2006 Freightliner tractor rig is worth $25,000.

      Jonesboro television station KAIT reports (http://is.gd/7Ip6Ol ) the thieves needed an air compressor and impact wrench to remove the tires.

      The truck was last tracked in Marion on Sunday, and the vehicle's information has been entered in a national crime database.
