According to a local report, the limo service driver brought the classic Bentley back to the company garage at 9:30 pm. Unbeknownst to employees, a man walked into the open garage door behind the car, then hid inside another car until everyone left the building.
It took the man until 1 am to get the Bentley started and out of the garage. The limo service owner believes the person wasn’t familiar with how to drive such a vehicle, which isn’t like most modern cars. Also, the Bentley has been modified with an American transmission and antilock brakes. It also has a new engine instead of the original powerplant.
Thanks to surveillance video footage police in Kansas City know how the heist went down. The man was dropped off at the garage by a white Ford Fusion Hybrid, which was possibly stolen as well. Now the limousine service, which has struggled during the pandemic is hurting even more since the Bentley was a key part of the business.
We’ve seen far too many heartbreaking car theft stories in the past year as thieves have targeted private individuals, shops, and dealerships with no mercy. Hopefully this Bentley is found and returned to the business is good condition.
