SOUTHWEST MIAMI-DADE, Fla. (WSVN) -- A family is offering a four-figure cash reward for the return of some pricey auto parts stolen immediately outside their home early Friday.

A surveillance camera captured a thief using a jack to remove a vehicle's rims and then rolling them away.

The car's owner, who said he woke up to his vehicle up on bricks and its $5,000 rims missing, is confident that the flashy auto accessories will bring attention to themselves. "It's custom made for the Corvette; not for any other car," explained Roberto Gonzalez. "When [the suspects] get out there, somebody is going to see the rims, they'll be [stolen] and they'll come back to me hopefully."

The victimized family is offering a $1,000 reward for the return of their property.

If you have any information on this theft, call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS. Remember, you can always remain anonymous, and you may be eligible for a reward.
