2 vehicles stolen from dealer had been purchased at same auction

October 27, 2013
An Illinois dealer who recently bought seven vehicles at a Michigan auction house said he was victimized four days later when two of the vehicles were stolen from his dealerships, which are 81 miles apart.
Coincidence? The vehicle stolen from one store was seen on surveillance video when the second vehicle was stolen. Also, the dealer said that for at least one of the two stolen vehicles, the auction house in Carleton, Mich., issued only one set of keys, and he still has the keys.
Police continue to investigate the matter, and the dealer said the vehicles, a 2013 Ram 1500 Laramie and a 2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8, have not been recovered.
