AMC Auto Sales in Roseville, Michigan near Detroit was victimized by a group of six people who broke into the dealership’s office through the front door, located the keys to the cars that they wanted to steal, walked out, clicked the key fobs, and drove off.
This is the second time this has happened to this particular dealership in a year.
The company says they tried to stop this sort of thing from happening by block entry of those vehicles by placing other cheaper cars around them, but the thieves simply busted out the windows of the cars that were blocking them and pushed them out of the way. Easy peasy.
“Didn’t work this time,” said Ryan Adballa of AMC Auto Sales.
A total of five cars were taken and they weren’t the cheap ones: a Dodge Challenger Scat Pack, a Cadillac Escalade, a S63 Convertible Mercedes Benz, a Dodge Challenger V6, and a Dodge Charger R/T.
“Six guys, all skinny. Looked very athletic. They seemed like they knew what they were doing,” Adballa told Click On Detroit.
They most certainly did.
“It’s a quarter million dollars worth of cars that were just gone, in seconds,” Adballa said sadly.
Naturally, the theft of the five high-dollar cars was caught on video.
Whoops. Wrong video. Here you go.
So much for Dodge’s new “security mode.”
