Police are trying to find three suspects who allegedly broke into a Clifton NJ auto dealership and stole luxury vehicles.
The suspects allegedly committed the auto thefts around 2:00 a.m. According to law enforcement, the suspects forced open a door at B&M Auto Mall in Clifton New Jersey and then used a Nissan Sentra from the dealership lot to ram through a fence.
The suspects reportedly stole a total of three cars: 2007 BMW, a 2010 Mercedes Benz, and a 2011 Nissan Maxima. The three cars stolen from the dealership reportedly have a total value of around $70,000.
The Clifton Police Department and the Paterson Police Department received calls about the break-in and sent officers to the scene. However, the suspects were long gone when the police officers arrived.
An employee at the Clifton auto dealership told police that one of the three suspects tried to break into the business a couple of weeks ago.
If authorities can eventually identify and capture the suspects, the thieves would probably face criminal charges for auto theft and burglary.
