Surveillance footage has captured the moment four thieves broke into a car dealership in Clayton County, Georgia.
The Clayton County Police Department published the footage on Facebook. It shows the moment a group of men broke into the Hennessy Buick GMC dealership in Morrow by throwing a large rock through a window and jumping into the office.
As the men stroll into the reception, they can be seen frantically searching for the location of the spare car keys. Once they found it, they rush in and stuff their pockets with keys. Security cameras located at the exterior of the dealership shows the men racing across the parking lot and jumping into different cars. The group eventually made off with four cars, WSB-TV 2 Atlanta reports.

“There were four guys that took a big boulder and threw it through the back glass and broke in,” dealership general manager Ricky Williams said. “They went through all the salespeople’s desks. These guys, only one person had covered his face, and the rest were smiling, having fun as they went through our desks and destroyed our dealership,” he said.
Shortly after the burglary, Williams was informed by authorities that in April 18, the dealership next door, Terry Cullen Chevrolet, was also broken into. Detectives are still trying to work out if the two events are connected.
The Clayton County Police Department has called on the public for help to identify the culprits. As only one of the men covered his face, and the cops have the footage, there’s a good chance they might just get a lead and even find them and retrieve the stolen vehicles.
