Seven high-end vehicles valued at approximately $671,000 were stolen over weekend from Walker Chevrolet in Franklin.
Surveillance video indicates that the heist happened at about 9:50 a.m. on Sunday.
Franklin Police officers were summoned to the business just before 6 a.m. Monday after an arriving employee found that a glass door into the business had been shattered.
Once inside the business, thieves obtained keys and key fobs that started seven vehicles, including a Corvette valued at approximately $150k. It appears that portions of the fence were cut to gain access to the property and to drive the seven vehicles away.
Franklin Police detectives are working with police in Fayetteville, where similar thefts were committed at two dealerships Saturday.
There is a cash reward for information that helps lead to an arrest in this case. Call Crime Stoppers at 615-794-4000.
