Thieves Target Car Computer Panels At Placer County Dealership


THIEVES TARGETING LOCAL CAR DEALERSHIP AND GOT AWAY WITHOUT — HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS WITH THE CAR PARTS. IS ALL CAUGHT ON SURVEILLANCE VIDEO. IT HAPPENED A FEW DAYS AGO BUT THE WIDESPREAD DAMAGE IS COMING TO LIGHT TONIGHT. THANK YOU FOR JOINING US I’M TONY LOPEZ. AND I AM ADRIENNE MOORE. AND WE HAVE MORE ON THIS BRAZEN BUST. THESE ARE THE KEY FOBS FOR ALL OF THE CARS BROKEN INTO. 27 IN ALL. NEW COURSE LIKE THIS ONE PART HERE ONE THE LONGEST RUNNING DEALERSHIPS IN AUBURN. I WAS COMPLETELY CAUGHT OFF GUARD. TONY IS THE OWNER OF AUBURN TOYOTA. AND THE 25 YEARS THAT HE HAS BEEN HERE HE SAYS THERE HAS BEEN AN OCCASIONAL STOLEN CAR BUT NOTHING THIS BAD. IT IS A BUMMER TO NOT HAVE THIS INVENTORY TO BE ABLE TO HAVE IN PLACE HERE. EMPLOYEES CALL IT A PROFESSIONAL JOB. DETECTIVE SAY A GROUP OF THIEVES BROKE A GATE THIS ROUND THE LOT AND DROVE RIGHT AND. I DON’T SEE MUCH DAMAGE OUT HERE. I DON’T KNOW. THE THIEVES DID LEAVE FINGERPRINTS BEHIND AND RIPPED OUT COMPUTER PANELS THE CONTROL EVERYTHING FROM THE AIR CONDITIONING TO THE STEREO. THEY PULLED THE HEAD UNIT BACK SO THEY COULD TAKE THE WIRING OUT. WITHOUT THOSE PANELS, THE CARS ARE UNDRIVABLE. THE SHORT-TERM THEY’RE ALL GOING TO BE FIXED IN RETAILED HERE ETC., BUT YOU TAKE A COUPLE OF DOZEN CARS OUT OF THE MIX DURING THE HOLIDAY SEASON, WHEN PEOPLE ARE BUYING CARS, AND IT JUST MAKES IT HARDER TO DO BUSINESS. ANYWHERE THE FLOOR IS DAMAGE. SOME BUYERS HOPE IT WILL BE THERE GAIN. IF IT WAS HERE I MAY BE ABLE TO BUY IT. BECAUSE THEY’RE GOOD HAVE TO SELL A CHEAPER. THEY WILL NOT TALK DISCOUNTS QUITE YET BUT MANAGEMENT ASSURES CUSTOMERS THAT THE CARS WILL ALL BE REPAIRED LIKE NEW WITH A FULL FACTORY WARRANTY. IT JUST MAKES IT HARDER TO DO BUSINESS. WE ARE GOING TO SURVIVE HOWEVER. FOR NOW THEY’RE FOCUSED ON INSTALLING NEW SECURITY SYSTEMS
