Police are appealing to the public for assistance to help locate a number of vehicles that were stolen from an Underwood car dealership yesterday.
Sometime between 2am and 5.30am (Monday July 29), a group of approximately eight people have used a white Holden Colorado to force entry through the Kingston Road dealership’s front gate, before cutting a hole in a secondary security gate.
The group has then forced entry to the dealership’s main building by kicking a hole in the door, before removing a small safe from the premises which contained multiple sets of car-keys.
The group then used the car-keys to steal 15 vehicles which were parked in the lot (pictured):
