At least 3 thieves break into car dealership in northwest Miami-Dade

2 vehicles, more than a dozen sets of keys stolen

MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Fla. – Police are investigating a break-in at car dealership in northwest Miami-Dade.

The incident was reported just after 4:30 a.m. at the Truck Depot at 9850 NW 27th Ave.

The business owner told Local 10 News reporter Roy Ramos he is working with detectives and reviewing surveillance video to try to find clues that will help them catch the thieves. 

"It was just a bunch of kids getting in here and messing everything up really," manager David Ramos said. 

According to the owner, at least three thieves drove through the fence of the business.

Miami-Dade police officers discovered thieves had stolen vehicles and broken into the business. 

The owner said the crooks got away with two vehicles and more than a dozen sets of keys. He said they also tried to crack open a safe. 

They then drove a white SUV through a locked side gate and left the area.

"We have recovered all the keys, so far. The only thing they took of any value was a Gucci belt," Ramos said. 

The owner said this is not the first time his business has been burglarized. 

Nearby business Auto Drive LLC also fell victim to thieves more than a week ago, when surveillance cameras captured at least one person trying to take owner Ivan Jorge's  tow truck, but was unsuccessful.  

"They are taking advantage of us hard-working people here," Jorge said. "We are trying to make a dollar and it is costing for us to stay open."

Anyone with further information about either incident is asked to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-8477.
