A man had to look twice after waking up to find the wheels had been stolen from his car.
Scott Moore, 21, was about to go to work on Friday morning (November 27) when he saw that all four wheels of his BMW had been removed.
It was 7am when he made the discovery outside his partner's house on Selwyn Road in Gorleston.
"I did a double-take, that's for sure," he said.
The wheels were taken between 12pm and 7am.
Mr Moore, who is from Belton and works in the oil and gas industry, said: "That wasn't the worst bit, they'd left the car sitting on bricks and all the bricks were upright.The two bricks at the back were cracked in half. If the bricks had crumbled and the car fell on the floor I don't know how you'd get it back up.
He added: "I was a bit gutted, because I work hard and with all that's gone on this year, I didn't think people would do this to someone."

"I just want to make sure people are aware stuff like this is going on. I just want people to be vigilant," Mr Moore said.
The damage will cost approximately £2,000 to repair.
