Police Search For 17 Cars Stolen From Brooklyn Park Dealership


 A local car dealership is hoping for help finding more than a dozen cars that were stolen over the course of two days. Surveillance video shows three mask men entered the service area of Luther Brookdale Dodge late Saturday night, taking five vehicles. But that was just the beginning. “It started Saturday night – they broke into the business, started taking vehicles we think only about five left Saturday night,” said Deputy Chief Mark Bruley. Video taken from inside Luther Brookdale Dodge in Brooklyn Park shows masked men enter the service area and begin taking the vehicles they wanted. “We believe Saturday night based video they came in with three of them they left with about five vehicles they were able to shuttle out of there and I don’t know if greed got to them because they came back with five or six accomplices and went at it again,” Bruley said. The second trip inside the service center netted the burglars 12 additional vehicles. “17 cars at this point is what we believe is missing,” said Bruley. Bruley says they learned of the thefts from Minneapolis Police, who were called to investigate a man slumped over in a vehicle early Monday morning. “They tried to make contact with that individual and he started ramming into their police cars and they took him into custody. They found out he was in a stolen vehicle and he had a bunch of key fobs from Brookdale Luther in Brooklyn Park,” Bruley said. That’s when the dealership told investigators about the break-ins.
