You depend on them for safety, but your car's side mirrors could be the latest hot commodity. Thieves are stealing them and selling them on eBay. El Segundo police say they received five reports of side view mirrors being stolen from GMC and Chevy sport utility vehicles about a week ago.

The vehicles were parked on residential streets when the thefts occurred.

A string of similar thefts was reported in Carson.

Police across the country say thieves pop the mirrors out of the molding and sell them for up to $30 each.
