Luxury Car Thefts On The Rise In Cleveland
Police have indicated this is a recurring pattern in the Cleveland area.
Thieves break into the dealership, steal keys, and drive off with the vehicles.
On January 6, police talked about this disturbing trend noting that more than three dealerships had been broken into.
Ganley Mercedes-Benz of Akron was broken into prior to this one.
In that case, employees reporting to work in the morning called 911 to report broken glass and keys scattered everywhere.
“Things were broken. We see where they got in, keys that were rummaged through on the ground, so we haven’t assessed everything yet.”
While surveillance video is often available, not all of the thieves of recent burglaries have been apprehended.
This is a developing story.
