Owen Wilson was the victim of a “grand larceny” after his tires were stolen from his Tesla parked overnight in Santa Monica last weekend.
Law enforcement officials confirmed that the wheels were reported to have been completely removed from the vehicle on Sunday, May 22.
Lt. Rudi Flores of the Santa Monica Police Department confirmed to Fox News Digital that “nobody saw anything. There were no witnesses to the crime.”
Estimates of total losses have reportedly exceeded $4,000 and officials are “checking the security cameras of nearby homes for any leads” in the case.
Grand theft is defined under Section 487(a) of the California Penal Code as the unlawful appropriation of another person’s property valued at more than $950. The crime can be charged as a felony or misdemeanor.
The 53-year-old “Wedding Crashers” actor reportedly stopped the car outside his home in the upscale neighborhood, and noticed “tires and tires” missing in the morning, according to TMZ.
Tesla electric cars range anywhere from the Base Model 3, base price $43,990, to the Model X Plaid, which starts at $119,990 and offers an estimated range of 335 miles per charge with top speeds of 200 mph.
Wilson recently starred as Charlie alongside Ben Affleck’s fiancée, Jennifer Lopez, in the romantic comedy “Mary May,” and is preparing to play a priest in “The Haunted Mansion” with Danny DeVito and Rosario Dawson.
“It’s profitable to commit a crime in Los Angeles County,” Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva recently said while talking about Attorney General George Gascon’s policies last month, which he claimed led to a spike in crime rates in the city.
No Sheriff says their deputies make arrests, but cases ‘fall away’ when they reach Da Gascon
“We have people [from] Villanueva said before adding that “foreign nationals [are] Coming here to do robberies.”
More than 400,000 people have signed a Los Angeles County petition calling for Gascon to be withdrawn. The petition must be 566,857 by July 6 in order to have a question of no-confidence in the November ballot for Los Angeles voters.
The 2021 bid did not collect enough signatures by the deadline to apply to vote.

On his first day in office beginning December 8, 2020, Gascon issued a warrant listing 13 misdemeanors that the DA office is no longer prosecuting as part of efforts to “re-imagine public safety and best serve the interests of justice and the welfare of society.” Including driving without a valid license, drug possession, drinking in public, public intoxication, loitering for prostitution, resisting arrest, and trespassing.
Villanueva, a Democrat who is running for re-election in June, described Gascon as allegedly contributing to an uptick in violent crime in Los Angeles.
His office filed 13,238 cases that the attorney general’s office later dismissed because they did not comply with “Jascone’s Special Guidelines.”
“An astonishing number of cases,” Villanueva told Fox News. “These are people who did bad things that left a victim, gave evidence, and said ‘don’t care’.”

“Representatives will continue to do their job, make arrests, write reports, but what happens after you submit it to the DA is where it all collapses,” Villanueva said.
