Three cars were stolen and a fourth was damaged in a brazen theft at a Stratford car dealership that was caught on surveillance video.
Jason Grenier, the sales manager at Blasius South, says his brother received an alert Sunday morning from their alarm company that said there was a break-in at the dealership. When his brother arrived, he saw the front of the building smashed due to one of the vehicles in the showroom being driven through the front entrance.

Grenier says the thieves got in by throwing a brick through a front window. Cameras captured them going into the key room and getting keys for specific vehicles – each high-performance cars.
The sales manager says the suspects ended up leaving the Audi A4 behind because of the extensive damage, but got away with the Shelby, an Infinity Q50 and a Subaru WRX STI.
There was no estimate yet for the damage to the building, but Grenier says the three cars stolen total $120,000. The damaged vehicle will need $15,000 to fix.
“Just surreal,” says Grenier. “…They weren't stealing these cars to then resell them. They didn't have any care for the cars – even the Shelby that they drove out afterwards. They didn't clear out the debris. They just drove right through the frame of the building.”
Police say they have recovered the stolen cars, but Grenier says they are badly damaged. Investigators are now following up in search of the perpetrators.
