Two Indicted for Wheel Thefts from Car Dealerships

Brian Kassal

A Jefferson County grand jury has returned a 13-count indictment accusing a man and a woman of stealing tires and wheels from new cars at auto dealerships and selling them for personal gain. Brian Allen Kassal, DOB: 4-29-85, and Sarah Jessica Maksimovic, DOB: 8-19-91, have each been indicted according to their alleged participation in the thefts.

Kassal has been indicted on 13 counts.

Maksimovic has been indicted on one count of Theft and one count of Conspiracy to Commit Theft for her role in the theft of one set of wheels/tires and the subsequent attempted sale of the property to an undercover law enforcement officer.

According to the indictment, between November, 2017 and September, 2018 Kassal went onto the private property of nine different car dealerships across the metro Denver area and stole wheels and tires off of new cars, often leaving the cars on cinder blocks. In most cases he would list the tires and wheels on Craigslist to sell.

The indictment was filed on October 31, 2018.

The investigation was conducted by the Golden Police Department, Colorado State Patrol, and the First Judicial District Attorney’s Office. Warrants have been issued for the arrest of Kassal and Maksimovic with bond in the amounts of $65,000 and $2,000, respectively.

The filing of a criminal charge is merely a formal accusation that an individual has committed a crime(s). A defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty. See Colo. RPC 3.6
