One of the defendants nicknamed the group the "Rim Reapers," according to Spota. Some of the cars targeted were Cadillac Escalades, Acuras, and Nissan Maximas.
The prosecutor says one set of four rims could cost as much $4,000. They were sold for as little as $500 on the street. He says other stolen items were sold online.
The arrests follow a seven-month investigation.
