A Hastings woman says she doesn't feel safe in her own home after all four wheels of her car were stolen in an overnight theft.
Genevieve Allan woke up to find her car jacked up on a wooden log on Nottingley Rd, in the Hastings suburb of Frimley, on Friday morning, with the wheels missing.
"My husband went out to go to work and somebody had stolen all four wheels off our car," she said.
"They obviously came prepared because they had a round log and a jack and lifted it to take all four wheels off the car.
"We are hard-working people, who have the car because of how hard we work. My husband works six and a half days a week."
A police spokeswoman said they had been notified of a vehicle with its tyres removed at 7.51am on Friday morning.
"Something needs to be done. The amount of car thefts around here is shocking," Allan said.
"There are always stories of cars beings stolen and set alight. Something needs to happen to bring this to attention."
Allan added: "It's heartbreaking and it's costing us money too. And we don't feel safe around our own house."
The disgruntled Hastings resident said police attended and found fingerprints on the jack used to lift the vehicle.

"They didn't get anything from it and there hasn't been much follow-up either, so I'm not too impressed," she said.
"Everyone is quite shocked. Frimley is supposed to be one of the better areas."
Having discussed the incident with her Nottingley Rd neighbours, Allan believes the tyres must have been taken between 11pm and 2.30am.
"I was surprised nobody saw anything as it's such a busy road with people going up and down it," she said.
"If anybody did see something, it'd be great to hear."
Police are making inquiries to determine the circumstances of the incident.
