Hamilton Police Investigate Daring Theft of BMW, Mercedes, and Porsche from Imperial Exotic Motors.
Several high-end cars were stolen from Imperial Exotic Motors, a luxury car dealership in Hamilton, leaving the owner and local police scrambling to solve the crime. The Hamilton Police Department is now actively investigating the break-in, which occurred on a quiet Sunday morning.
The thieves gained entry into the dealership through a back door. Their target was clear – the most valuable cars on the lot. Among the stolen vehicles were a BMW, a Mercedes-Benz, and a Porsche, collectively valued at over $110,000. The loss is a significant blow to the dealership, especially with the critical tax season approaching.
Sam Abukhas, the owner of Imperial Exotic Motors, described the incident as a hard hit to his business. He received an alert from the security system and watched the theft unfold in real-time through security camera footage. Despite rushing to the scene, he arrived too late – the culprits had already vanished with the cars.
Adding to the complexity of the situation, the stolen vehicles were not equipped with GPS tracking, raising concerns that they could be dismantled for parts before recovery is possible. The heist didn't just end with the vehicles; the thieves also made away with keys to seven other cars, potentially planning future thefts.
In a surprising expression of leniency, Abukhas stated he might forgive the perpetrators if they were to return the stolen vehicles. Nonetheless, the dealership is taking no chances in the future. Enhanced security measures are being planned, including the possibility of adding fencing around the premises to deter similar incidents.
The Hamilton Police Department is urging anyone with information about the theft at Imperial Exotic Motors to come forward. This high-stakes crime not only impacts the dealership but also raises concerns about vehicle security and crime in the area.
