ATLANTA, Ga. (Atlanta News First) – Thomaston police are investigating after thieves allegedly stole two Ford Mustangs totaling nearly $200,000 from the Southern Ford dealership in Thomaston.
A Ford Mustang GT500 Heritage and a blue Ford Mustang GT500 were taken overnight Friday.
“It’s really a special car; we’re one of the lucky dealers to have it,” said general manager Chip Richardson. “The Heritage was a numbered car; less than a thousand were built, and everything was certified.”
According to Thomaston police, thieves broke into the showroom and took not only the cars but the keys to most of the cars on the lot.
“I don’t think it was someone who came for a ride; they knew what they were looking for,” Chief Mike Richardson said. “And I don’t think these are anywhere, and they’re headed somewhere.”
The thieves disabled the security cameras, police said.
For those running the dealership, it’s incredibly disappointing.
“We’re a small country town, and usually nothing happens,” Chip Richardson said.
Investigators are asking anyone with information to call Thomaston police.
There is a $1,000 reward for any information leading to an arrest.
