GREENFIELD -- Police are investigating another round of break-ins at Milwaukee-area car dealerships. Three separate break-ins occurred early Wednesday morning, May 18th.
The first break-in occurred around 4:00 a.m. at the Braeger Ford dealership near 27th and Plainfield in Greenfield.
"Officers were called by a security company to the Braeger dealership on South 27th Street in our city for a report there were suspicious people in the parking lot," Sgt. Chris Deglopper with the Greenfield Police Department said.
Police said one car was stolen -- and that vehicle was recovered in Milwaukee, near 27th and Capitol later on Wednesday.
Police are still looking for the suspects. Police say they appeared to be juveniles.
"I dont know why these juvenile are targeting these auto dealerships, but we, as well as other jurisdictions are well aware of this and actually have special patrols out. We would love to catch them," Sgt. Deglopper said.
The second break-in happened at Diamond Jims Carriage Auto Mart near 97th and Greenfield.
"Walked up to the front door and the front door was kicked in," Travis Dowhen said. "It hurts the bottom line."
Dowhen said because of so many recent break-ins involving dealerships, they were prepared.
"We're a small dealership -- so we decided it makes a little more sense for us to take all of our keys home. Gives them no opportunity to steal cars from us," Dowhen said.
The third break-in was reported at the Russ Darrow dealership near 91st and Brown Deer in Milwaukee.
Windows were smashed out at this business shortly after 5:00 a.m.
Police say three cars were stolen.
