KIRTLAND, Ohio (WOIO) - Kirtland Police is offering free steering wheel locks to residents who own a Hyundai due to the increase in car thefts in Northeast Ohio and nationwide.

These are the requirements the Kirtland Police Department listed to get a steering wheel lock while supplies last:
- Owning a 2016-2021 Hyundai that uses a key to start the ignition
