Two men sought in the theft of expensive chrome rims and tires left a Biloxi casino resort in a car with a sunroof, Biloxi police Investigator Tom Lamb said.

The 18-inch rims and new tires with less than 100 miles on them are worth about $1,600, Lamb said.

A guest at the IP Casino Resort reported the theft, saying it occurred about 10:30 p.m. Sept. 18.

Surveillance footage shows two men believed to have stolen the rims and the vehicle they used to leave, Lamb said.

“From a distance, the car looks like a (Nissan) Maxima or an Altima,” he said.

The men are each sought on a grand larceny charge.
