CMPD Giving Away Free Locks To Hyundai and Kia Owners After TikTok Challenge Results In Wave of Thefts


CMPD is about to host their second steering wheel lock giveaway this weekend after an overwhelmingly positive response to their first one.

The locks are being given away in response to a viral TikTok trend that challenges teens to steal 2010-2021 Kia and Hyundai vehicles using a USB cord.

According to the CMPD, you must be a resident of Mecklenburg County and have the vehicle registration of a 2011 to 2021 Hyundai or Kia with a key start ignition.

This coming Saturday’s event will be drive-through and first come first serve.
