In the early hours of December 9, in the Raleigh, North Carolina area, a group of thieves were busy cleaning out a local store. Within just 15 minutes, the group drove off in his $600,000 worth muscle car, in what appeared to be a highly coordinated effort captured by surveillance cameras.

It all started at the Rillington dealership just south of Raleigh. U-hole truck parked nearby Hyster Chrysler Dodge Ram Jeep and some jumped out. Dealer Operations Her manager said that everyone seemed to know exactly where to go and that everything “looked almost rehearsed”.

I threw a brick through the dealer’s glass door and used a crowbar to break inside the key lock box. This made swiping vehicles easier.

Instead of targeting mid-range models, the thieves were aiming directly at Hellcats, TRXs, Durangos, Corvettes, and other high-performance cars. A total of 12 cars were stolen.

Over the past few years, many thieves have targeted retail outlets in the middle of the night when no one is likely to show up.

The operations manager said a similar robbery occurred at a Winston-Salem dealership, leading him to believe it had been pulled off by a car theft ring.
