No. They can then use the spare - or they can bring their own wheel and tire which might be practical due to the common nature of trailer wheels - and tow it away, but it will take time to do that.
There are other wheel-mounted security devices which cover or otherwise secure the wheel nuts/studs, of varying effectiveness and quality. One is the Trailer Keeper product, discussed earlier in this thread.
The best wheel lock design I've seen (but just online) is the AL-KO Secure
, but it is specific to the wheel design, and specific to the AL-KO suspension (which is not sold in North America and specifically not used by Escape). One could custom-fabricate something similar, but it would be a lot of work.
