A Charlotte car dealership was recently targeted by robbers, the latest in a string of such occurrences in the city.
On Wednesday, law enforcement officials responded to reports of a burglary at an automotive dealership in the city. According to police, the incident took place around 11 p.m. on the same evening.
The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department (CMPD) disclosed that the perpetrators had broken into the dealership and made off with several items. The stolen goods reportedly included automotive parts and accessories, as well as merchandise from the dealership’s store.
The CMPD, which is currently investigating the incident, has yet to apprehend the suspects. However, they have released a surveillance video of the perpetrators and are asking anyone with information to come forward.
The incident marks another in a series of thefts targeting automotive dealerships in the Charlotte area. Over the past year, there have been a number of robberies at dealerships, resulting in the loss of thousands of dollars’ worth of merchandise.
In response to the recent spate of thefts, the CMPD has increased its presence at dealerships across the city. Officers have also been conducting regular patrols in an effort to deter potential criminals.
Despite these efforts, however, the thefts continue. This has caused considerable frustration among local dealerships, many of whom have expressed their concern over the lack of protection from law enforcement.
For now, the Charlotte automotive industry is left to wait and see if the CMPD can apprehend the suspects and put an end to the thefts. Until then, dealerships across the city will need to remain vigilant and take the necessary precautions to protect their businesses.
In the meantime, the CMPD is asking anyone with information on the recent burglary to come forward and contact them.
