It's not the first thing you might think of as a target of thieves, but police say that truck tailgates can be stolen in as little as 20 seconds, and can cost you thousands of dollars to replace.

Authorities say that one man is suspected in the thefts of 16 truck tailgates, which can bring in up to $100 each at auto salvage yards, in at least eight different cities across Kansas and Missouri.
