While the temperatures were dropping this week in San Antonio, a few burglars used that as an opportunity to take new automobiles off of the Ancira dealership parking lot.
It was first suspected on Wednesday by a worker at the Ancira dealership on I-10. That employee found a door smashed open, 45 car keys stolen and five vehicles missing.
The vice president of the dealership believes the burglars were able to get away with so much due to the power outages.
“You know, your backup cameras can only last so long on batteries and whatnot, and even then, they freeze. We’re not prepared for these temperatures down here. So the camera obviously didn’t pick up anything. There’s no alarm system,” said April Ancira.
Details on the suspects involved are not known yet, but the dealership has prompted anyone with details to reach out to SAPD at 210-207-7273.
