One of the vehicles, the gold Dodge Caravan was used to ram an overhead service door in order to exit the service garage.  The vehicle was later located and recovered in the proximity of the dealership.

The 2017 gray Chrysler Pacifica van was later recovered unoccupied in the area of W. Keefe Avenue and N. Teutonia Avenue in Milwaukee.

The 2014 silver Dodge Dart bearing Wisconsin registration plate 565-WCB is still missing.

The dealership's owner is dealing with several thousand dollars worth of damage caused by these thieves -- who drove out of the dealership through the service door.

"They stole three vehicles from inside the dealership and drove them right through the door," Roman Weninger said. We`ve got good security for vehicles parked on the lot and good security on the showroom floor. It`s just that we were working on vehicles in the service department and they were able to basically drive a couple of those away. It takes effort to do something like this and they`re better off putting their effort in a more positive direction. To get involved in this type of activity really hurts people. It really does. I mean, here at 5 Corners, we have 50 employees. This is setting us back a little bit."

    This is an attack on law abiding humans. These sub what ever they are should be caught convicted and sentenced to death by the most extreme painful method available to mankind. That should curb their appeal a bit. I believe the brazen bull method should amplify their voices enough that this behavior deter others as they watch..

    I hope that Mil. PD is involved with trying to capture those children. Cedarburg isn’t used to those kind of people. Just had an incident with a fellow hitting a car & then striking two women & seriously injuring them. The guy was screaming racism as being arrested. They had to tranquilize him like an animal.

    I don’t recognize the misguided yutes, but I swear I had a pair of God awful ugly colored pants, just like the one little Angel was wearing, that I use to wear with my mesh tee-shirt back in the 70’s. If that young misguided yute only knew what a chick magnet pair of pants he was wearing he’d be down cruising Wisconsin Avenue, not stealing cars.

    Time for a brass check. They’ve looted all they can loot from their own neighborhoods, now they’re moving north. Rep. Brandtjen called it early.

    Get these stinking thugs off the streets. Why are these stinking brats committing car thefts, strong armed robbery and armed with weapons.. You never hear from the parents of these little hood rats committing these crimes until one of their little rabies brats are shot or injured during a police arrest. Then the non existent parents want to claim their baby was such a good kid. GO TO SCHOOL, GET AN EDUCATION AND STOP FEELING LIKE THE WORLD OWES YOU. THE WORLD DOES NOT OWE YOU. YOU ALL CAME INTO THIS WORLD WITH A BRAIN JUST LIKE EVERYONE ELSE USE IT.

    Coming soon to a suburb near you. Be prepared people of Waukesha, Washington and Ozaukee Counties. They know that you aren’t expecting crime in your neighborhoods. Just a matter of time before the crime becomes worse in the farm communities.
