This is kind of funny -- it is taken from the link above:

"I'll admit, as a kid, I stole them too.

My best heist was off of Senator Frank Lautenberg's (D-NJ) limo during services at my synagogue. My friend and I cut out the service with the typical "bathroom excuse" and bagged the caps when we were like 10 years old.

Obviously I don't condone it and I was NOT raised that way but I was doing typical dopey kid stuff.

I had my VW caps stolen off my Jetta and my folks had their BMW's ones taken too. My mother was a teacher and the kids took them."

Don't really need tools 2 take off hubcaps, maybe he was taking the caps but don't know why.
I used 2 take the caps off cars when I was young for no reason but just 2 collect them. I remember the BMW caps always looked nice for my bike.

He might have been taking the valve pins out of stems of the tire valves which not only lets all of the air out of the tire but you have no way of refilling the air until you gat a replacement pin for the stem.

Saw this tonight on Third st., but he pedaled off before I could figure out what I was seeing. It didn't seem to me that he had any tools, so all I can imagine was that he is collecting the caps to the air valves from tires. Is there a black market for these 50 cent items???

Could be he was grabbing hubcaps, but I dunno...again, I saw no tools.
