KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- An East Tennessee woman is furious after tires were stolen off her son's car at Knoxville Center Mall parking lot Tuesday afternoon.

Jamie Floyd said her son was parked outside the Belk store, and the tires were stolen in broad daylight somewhere between noon and 2:00 p.m.

"Oh I'm angry, I'm extremely angry," said Floyd.

Floyd said her son was attending a school inside the mall that's designed to help him graduate in a timely manner. She said her son missed most of his Junior and Senior year due to illness.

"He's been through a lot that no child should have to go through," said Floyd.

According to Floyd, a police report has been filed, but there are no suspects, and no one has come forward with information about who stole the tires. She said she wants more help from mall security.

"I asked the security guard if the cameras reached that far. He couldn't give me an answer," said Floyd.

The Knoxville Center Mall Manager Lara Sievers claimed the school was not open at the time of the incident and the student was not there. Sievers said security approached the student rather than security being called

"We take security issues very seriously and we are disappointed this occurred. This mall was purchased in August of 2016 by new owners and they have invested a lot of time, money and energy in making Knoxville Center a family friendly venue," Sievers said.

Floyd said she just wants whoever did this to just admit it.

"Just turn yourself in admit what you did. Turn yourself in, stealing from anybody is not right. I mean, karma is gonna get you regardless."
