9 SUVs vandalized at Ann Arbor auto dealer
A thief or thieves broke windows and stole GPS units from nine sport utility vehicles at an auto dealership in Scio Township early Thursday morning.
Suburban Chevrolet general manager Mike Mosser said the thieves broke the rear passenger windows of seven Cadillac Escalades and two Chevrolet Suburbans and tore apart the dashboards to get at the units.
The damage amounted to $97,000, he said.
Mosser said breaking the back windows did not trigger the alarms on the cars. The dealership, located at 3515 Jackson Road, will be installing new alarms that will be activated by any glass breakage or lifting of the vehicle, he said.
Mosser said vehicle access to the lots is blocked off, so those responsible are believed to have entered on foot. The thefts occurred between midnight and 3 a.m. Thursday, he said.
Surveillance video has been turned over to the Washtenaw County sheriff’s department, he said.
