ATLANTA, Georgia. (Atlanta News First) – Thomaston police are investigating after thieves allegedly stole two Ford Mustangs totaling nearly $200,000 from a Southern Ford of Thomaston dealership.
A Ford Mustang GT500 Heritage and a blue Ford Mustang GT500 were hijacked Friday night.
“This is a really special car, we are one of the lucky dealers to have it,” said general manager Chip Richardson. The “Heritage” was a licensed car; less than a thousand of them were built and everything is certified on it.
According to Thomaston police, the thieves broke into the dealership and took not only the cars, but also the keys to most of the cars in the parking lot.
“I don’t think it was anyone who came to ride, they knew what they were looking for,” said chief Mike Richardson. “And I don’t think they’re going to be cut somewhere, they’re going somewhere.”
According to police, the thieves turned off the security cameras.
For those who run a dealership, this is incredibly frustrating.
“We are a small provincial town and usually nothing happens,” said Chip Richardson.
Investigators are asking anyone with information to call Thomaston police.
There is a $1,000 reward for any information leading to an arrest.
