Surveillance video shows vandals break into local car dealership


GET OUR HURRICANE READY GUIDE AT FARM FRESH STORES ON WAVY.COM AND ON THE WAVY WEATHER APP. BACK HERE IN HAMPTON ROADS, ANOTHER ROUND OF VANDALISM AT LOCAL CAR DEALERS. NICOLE: THE SECOND TIME THIS WEEK WE HAVE BEEN REPORTING ON THIS TYPE OF CRIME AND VICTIM. MONDAY WE SHOWED YOU DAMAGE TO TWO CAR BUSINESSES, BOTH ON FREDERICK BOULEVARD. A THIRD BUSINESS IN THAT CITY HAS NOW BEEN HIT ALONG WITH ANOTHER ONE IN SOUTH NORFOLK. NEW TONIGHT, QUESTIONS ABOUT WHY IT HAPPENED AND MORE IMPORTANTLY, WHO DID IT. WATCH CLOSELY AT THE WINDOW AND THE DOOR, A YOUNG MAN POPS UP AND SCOPES OUT THE AUTO SALES IN SOUTH NORFOLK. MOMENTS LATER, SMASH! THE SUSPECTS WORK HARD TO BREAK THE DOUBLE PANED GLASS. WHEN I GOT HERE, IT WAS FULL OF GLASS. WE HAD PART OF THE DOOR FRAME THAT WAS BUSTED DOWN HERE ON THE FLOOR, GLASS EVERYWHERE. AS I PEEK THROUGH THE WINDOW, IT WAS — MY FRONT OFFICE WAS COMPLETELY SHATTERED WITH GLASS. NICOLE: WHEN THE LOCKS WON’T BUDGE, THE SUSPECTS WHO WERE NOT IDENTIFYING BECAUSE THEY APPEAR UNDERAGE RIPPED THE PANES. IT WAS HORRIBLE. WE WERE WORRIED ABOUT WHETHER THEY HAD VANDALIZED OR TAKEN ANYTHING FROM INSIDE WAS OUR BIGGEST CONCERN AS TO WHETHER OR NOT THEY HAD GOTTEN OUR KEYS. NICOLE: WHEN ONE YOUNG MAN CLIMBS IN THE FRONT OFFICE, HE LOOKS INTO THE CAMERA. MAYBE HE GETS SPOOKED, HE TAKES OFF THE WAY HE CAME IN. MY FIRST THOUGHT IS THEY WERE KIDS OUT DOING THIS. I’M WONDERING WHAT IS GOING ON IN THE HOMES, WHY ARE THESE KIDS AROUNDING RUN AT 2:30 DOING THIS TYPE OF THING. NICOLE: SOMEONE RANSACKS THE KEY RACK AT G.A.C. OUGHT MOTIVE IN PORTSMITH. THE YOUNG MAN DROPPED THE KEYS AND WAS CHASED AWAY. THEY WANT TO KNOW WHO DID THIS AND WHY. I LIKE FOR THIS TO MAYBE EACH A NEIGHBOR WHO KNOWS THIS KID, A PARENT, OF COURSE, WHO KNOWS THEM, A TEACHER OR SOMEBODY THAT HE WORKS WITH SO HE CAN BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR WHAT HE’S DONE AND MAYBE GET SOME DISCIPLINE SO THAT THIS CAN PUT HIM ON THE RIGHT PATH AS AN ADULT. NICOLE: POLICE AREN’T SURE THAT THE TWO INCIDENTS WE JUST SHOWED YOU ARE RELATED, HOWEVER, FOR THE SMITH POLICE TOLD ME THE YOUNG MAN WHO TOOK THE KEYS IN THAT VIDEO COULD BE PART OF THE GROUP THAT ALSO VANDALIZED THOSE TWO CAR SHOPS ON FREDERICK BOULEVARD OVER THE WEEKEND.
