Perkins police asked residents to be on the look out for a dark blue 2008 Honda Odyessy, license plates ERK5150, taken from Victory Honda on Thursday night where it was being serviced.

If the thieves act as they did earlier this week, that license plate could be changed out for another.

Sandusky police found a 2009 Chevy Traverse stolen Sunday from Foster Chevrolet parked on Cannon Street on Thursday.

Police believe suspects abandoned it with a stolen license plate after using it to ram through garage doors at other businesses. After breaking in, the suspects burglarized the businesses.

Anyone with information about the break-ins or the mini-van may call Perkins police at 419-627-0824. For more on the rash of thefts, pick up a copy of Saturday's Register.

Well..Let's See
If they looked for cars with keys it's most likely kids 15 to 19. Where were the business they broke into?? What did they take? Who should worry?


I would have a problem with Victory Honda and Foster Chevrolet if they had left the keys to my vehicle in it while it was there for service so that it could be stolen!! Sounds like someone knows that these places know that they do this and watches for it and waits for another car with the keys in it and then takes off. That would be where I'd be watching


All new cars will have GPS units installed in them whether you like it or not. You'd better be a good with computers if you want it disabled.


Wish they would use my truck, it needs a new paint job on the hood....


Its sad their is so much crime the cops have to ask for help to put these criminals behind bars


When a car is left in the building at any dealership keys must be left on top of the car incase a fire took place and they could move the cars out so there would be no explosions. And NO all cars do not have gps only about 5% and that wont track anything unless you have lowjack or something like that installed in your car.


Dealerships have procedures for customers keys while they are being appraised or serviced. I would guess the theif worked at both the dealerships and knows those procedures. All the dealerships in the area have surveillance cameras. If the theif does show up on the camera, then its pretty clear it was a past employee that knows where the cameras are and how to avoid them.


Perkins? Huh, who knew?
