Suspect Stole Truck worth $72,000 from Dealership in Burlington

Just a couple of months ago, the Lynch GM Superstore in Burlington upgraded to a state of the art surveillance system.

Early Monday morning cameras captured a suspect breaking a window in the service garage, crawling through, and making his way to where the keys were kept.

Police said he was able to find the keys to a 2016 Yukon XL Denali, worth about $72,000.

Dan Loggins, the Lynch superstore’s general manager, said the suspect also loaded 10 Bridgestone tires with rims into the back of the Yukon.

The tires were worth about $8500.

The suspect then drove away and a getaway car described as a white Hyundai Sonata followed.

Loggins said it was surprising to learn the suspect spent about an hour and a half on the lot.

"The thing that was shocking was he was very calm. He knew where to go, so that was kind of the shocking them about it. Typically in the area, we've had stuff like this in the past, people pre-scope them out and get everything out in advanced. But I'll tell you that our surveillance system here is very good. And I'm very confident we're going to get to the bottom of this,” said Loggins.

Burlington Police didn't want to comment any further other than saying they are following up on several leads, and want to talk to a person of interest.
