Two cars stolen from Stamford dealership

September 19, 2018

STAMFORD — Police are investigating whether cars stolen from dealerships here and in Norwalk this week are related.

Sgt. Sean Scanlan, of the Stamford Police Department’s Property Crimes Unit, said two men stole at least two used cars from the Hundai Dealership on McGee Avenue around 1:30 a.m. Wednesday.

Surveillance video shows the men kicking out the glass of a side door and crawling through the metal frame to avoid triggering the burglar alarm.

“They go right to where they keep the customer keys and rummage through that and grab two sets of keys and make off with two cars,” Scanlan said.

Scanlan said the dealership has confirmed two cars have been stolen, but a full inventory was still being done on Wednesday.

Scanlan said a car stolen from a Norwalk dealership over the weekend was discovered with its engine running Monday on Jefferson Street in Stamford. He said several cars were taken from Norwalk.

Scanlan said Stamford and Norwalk police are investigating whether the incidents are connected. He said they are examining video footage from both dealerships to try to identify the suspects.
