Police are appealing for information after three prestige vehicles, valued at over $350,000, were stolen from a car dealership in Somersby, and a fourth prestige vehicle was stolen from an automotive repair business in Kariong.
Just after 11:30pm on Sunday, March 24, three males in a Toyota Landcruiser attended a car dealership on Kangoo Rd, Somersby, and forced entry into the building after removing security bollards and reversing the Landcruiser into the entrance.
The men entered the building, and a short time later, drove three vehicles out, leaving the Toyota Landcruiser behind.
Officers from Brisbane Water Police District, with assistance from the Financial Crime Squad’s Motor Unit, commenced an investigation into the incident.
The first vehicle is a 1989 maroon VN Commodore sedan (Group A SS replica).
The second vehicle is a 1988 sky blue/silver VL Commodore sedan (Walkinshaw special).
The third vehicle is a 1984 VK black coloured Commodore sedan.
Police are also investigating the theft of a fourth vehicle that was stolen from a nearby automotive repairer on March 25.
At about 12:15am, two men approached a black 2010 model Holden Commodore HSV sedan parked at the repairer on Curringa Rd, Kariong, with CCTV depicting the men approaching the car.
Later in the morning, a staff member noticed the vehicle was missing and notified police.
The car is one of only 13 of its type that were made with manual transmission, making it a collector’s item.
Police are asking anyone who sights the vehicle, which has NSW registration plates DYI-84Y, not to approach it, but to instead contact Triple Zero (000) immediately.
Officers from Brisbane Water Police District are investigating both instances.
