At Longley Brothers Dodge in Fulton, the thieves targeted Dodge Ram 2500 trucks on Sunday afternoon. They jacked them up, then took off the tires and the rims and left the trucks on blocks. Those tires and rims are worth $2,800.
Surveillance video shows two men loading the tires into a Jeep Cherokee. They were at the dealership at least 30 minutes, during the day.
Police have determined it was a dark blue or black Jeep Cherokee with a rear passengers side brake light out. One man was wearing a camouflage sweatshirt and the other in a dark colored coat with a white strip.
Police say this could be connected to thefts at two other area dealerships in the past five months. They do plan to check websites like eBay and Craig’s List to see if they turn up.
The Longley Brothers dealership says they're offering a $500 reward for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the suspects. If you know anything, call State Police in Fulton at 593-1304.
