Thieves Smash Their Way In Hennessey Buick GMC Dealership, Take Off With Four Cars

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.

    we get surrounded more and more by scum like these dbags. you might ask yourself why. and its not only the excuse of population growth. then again, if you are young, you have no comparison of before and now. was not long ago when scum like this and actions like this were very very rare.

    • Adilos Nave

      Do you think it’s because the youth of today have far less opportunities than in the past? Or that the gap between the haves and haves-nots is growing at such a tremendous pace that we are likely to see an increase in crime due to people simply no longer having options for work? The people to fear the most are the ones with the least to lose. Remember that, politicians and uber-rich!

      • Paulbe

        Those “teens” will never have “opportunity” no matter how many opportunities are placed in front of them.

        • Adilos Nave

          Agreed but what we’re seeing is the result of community structure failing all around us. This particular group of upstanding citizens have already sealed their fates and deserve whatever punishment is given to them, but what if they were raised surrounded by opportunities and a nurturing environment? Good schools with appropriate funding in particular. Like stated in Batman The Dark Knight, “some people just want to watch the world burn.” But far less don’t want to see that happen and I firmly believe we as a society have failed them.

        Leave it up to some dumb liberal to shift blame on everyone but the perps. Get real.

        • Navigator Navy✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

          The blame could be on the society, in which they live, eat, play.

        • paulgdeaton

          … and leave it to some knee-jerk reactionary to want to ignore the problems that may have led to kids who see no good options and no credible future.

        • Adilos Nave

          Nice addition to the discussion. Trying to have a decent, respectful and intellectual conversation about complex topics with people like yourself is akin to repeatedly stubbing my toe on the same piece of furniture every morning. Seriously, just trying to look at things as a broader problem and potentially offer up some solutions while you throw out silly names like a schoolyard bully. Think about that.

        So what if there are millionaires and billionaires, while you aren’t? Worry about yourself and not what is in someone else’s pocket. The reality is, there are more options for making legitimate money now more than ever. We’ve had over a decade of incredibly low unemployment. So if you can’t find a job, you’re likely unemployable. Maybe you won’t end up a millionaire. So? If you need to steal cars to put shoes your feet, you’re pretty much among the scum of the earth.

        • Stephen G

          Isn’t that what these guys are doing…worrying about themselves and not what’s in somebody else’s pocket? It’s easy money. You think they steal these things for themselves. There is a lucrative black market for (usually) expensive automobiles and parts. It’s not the poor guy guy that ends up driving the stolen BMW, MB or Escalade, it’s the scumbag rich guy who can get away with not registering his car (because he’s a respected member of the community) or the scumbag body shop owner that puts stolen parts on your car and charges scumbag insurance companies retail prices. If you’re the average honest Joe you’re getting screw six ways from Sunday from all angles.

          • TheBelltower

            In no way did I attempt to justify theft.

          • Stephen G

            I understood your point and know you aren’t justifying theft. My point is that these guys are a very small cog in the crime machine that is controlled by those with deep pockets. They are just the most visible.

          • TheBelltower

            They are the “crime machine.” There are no deep pockets pulling the stings here. These guys are losers of their own accord.

          • Stephen G

            Why else would they steal four Chevrolets/Buicks?

  • Todd Priest

    Typical usual suspects.

  • F30FLORIPA

    Black boys

  • TheBelltower

    Yes. Lovely.
