Thief steals 2 wheels from California AG's car

Even California's top law enforcement official isn't immune to petty crime. Attorney General Jerry Brown's office said Thursday that a thief made off last week with the two passenger-side wheels from his state-owned Toyota Camry hybrid as it was parked outside his Oakland home.

Brown wrote about the crime on his Facebook page, saying "even though I am California's 'top cop,' 2 of my tires were stolen. No matter. I got 2 new ones and I'm rolling again!"

Oakland Police Sgt. Rich Vierra says no arrests have been made. Police don't know if the culprit knew the car was used by the attorney general.

Brown is a former two-term governor of California and a former mayor of Oakland.
