Wheel lug nuts stolen!?

I recently had 9 lug nuts stolen from my parked car while Home on Umbria. They left the wheel lock but took the 3 lug nuts from 3 of my tires. Lucky the tires didn’t fall off. Has anyone else had this happen in the area?

How to Report a Problem w/ Textizen

With an office of only 11 full time staff members, FOW relies on the public to report issues they observe in the park in order to address them in a timely manner, and ensure the preservation of Wissahickon Valley Park for generations to come. These problems can range from not urgent (for example, a fallen tree blocking a trail) to emergency situations (someone is hurt in the park). All emergency situations should be reported to 911 first and foremost, but to quickly and efficiently alert our staff to a non-emergency issue, park visitors can use our Report a Problem text system.
