COLLINSVILLE, Il. (KMOX) – The Collinsville Police Department is asking for information about a burglary at a car dealership that sustained damages worth approximately over $100,000.
The suspects approached the Laura Buick GMC dealership in Collinsville between 1:45 a.m. and 4:30 a.m. in a red Chevrolet or GMC pick-up truck and an early 2000’s model Ford passenger van. After parking in the adjacent lot, the burglars stole the rims and tires from 10 GMC Yukon Denali SUVs approximately worth $50,000.00. The same vehicles also sustained an additional $50,000 worth of damage.
Surveillance video depicting the suspects’ vehicles was obtained from a nearby business. Upon following a few leads, investigators believe that the suspects may be responsible for similar thefts in both Illinois and Missouri.
