But sold the stolen Durango Hellcat for $5,000.

A Dodge dealership in the Highland Township in Michigan was ransacked on 29 September. The car thieves got away with four high-end Dodges, including a 2021 Durango Hellcat, Durango GT, Ram TRX, and a 2017 Charger Hellcat SRT. The total value of the cars is around $330,000. It seems muscle cars are a firm favorite of car thieves.

According to Click On Detroit, who spoke with local officials, the thieves who relieved Szott Dodge of its stock are also connected to smash-and-grab gas station robberies in Waterford Township and White Lake Township.

According to the police, the description of the gas station robbers matched the description of the car thieves.

The crime was reported in the morning after employees arrived for work. They noticed the side door of an office in the parking lot and several other damaged doors. A big glass door was also broken, and the locker with the key fobs was open.

While investigating the dealership robbery, the authorities found out about the gas station incidents and connected the dots. Dodge needs to invest in Mercedes' new app for finding stolen cars.

To date, police have arrested four individuals, including a 15-year-old boy. The individuals in custody are not believed to be behind the robberies, however. A Dodge Durango matching the description of the stolen vehicle was spotted on the street. The police tried to stop the car, but the driver crashed into a wall.

The car was searched, and officials discovered a loaded semi-automatic handgun with an extended magazine that holds 30 rounds and a device used to reprogram vehicle keys.

Three individuals aged 32, 20, and 19 are being held at the Oakland County Jail. The minor is currently at the Oakland County Children's Village.

One of the men in custody admitted to buying the Durango from the actual car thieves for $5,000 cash. A brand-new Durango Hellcat retails for just over $80,000.

“This was great cooperative police work that resulted in the apprehension of numerous individuals involved in what was a commercial auto theft ring,” Oakland County Sheriff Michael Bouchard said. “Additionally, the fact that they carried weapons during the commission of their crime shows their willingness to be violent if cornered. I am very proud of the detective's work, and I'm glad these individuals are off the street.”

The car thieves are still at large, and a $1,000 reward is up for grabs. If you have any information, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-SPEAK-UP.
