SPD reports that it appears the thieves were no amateurs. They defeated locks, alarms, surveillance video, and went as far as to manipulate the exterior lights in the parking lot so they could work in the dark of the night, completely undetected. Video suggests the loot left the dealership in a U-Haul EL-17 foot truck and also suggests two of the individuals are black males.
Matt Bowers, the owner of the dealership, is offering a $25,000 reward to the person who provides information leading up to the arrest of the suspects. If the suspects are caught, half of the money will be paid upon arrest, and the other half upon conviction. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Slidell Police Department at 985-646-4347 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. You can remain anonymous.
