SHOALS — Indiana State Police are looking for answers and asking for the public’s help after an overnight burglary at a Shoals car dealership.
Police were called early this morning to respond to Bailey Brothers Used Cars, 510 2nd St., Shoals, after employees discovered that the sales office had been broken into.
An investigation revealed that, during the overnight hours, three sets of keys were taken from the burglarized office. Of the three cars the keys belonged to, a 1994 Jeep Cherokee was not moved, a 1995 Jeep Cherokee was moved across the street and across from the service center and a 2009 BMW 335i was stolen from the property.
After entering the BMW as stolen in a computer database, investigators learned the vehicle had been recovered at about 6:30 this morning by the Orange County Sheriff’s Department. The vehicle was located in Orange County abandoned in a ditch.
State police crime scene investigators spent this morning processing the vehicles and the business for further clues and information. Police also want the public’s assistance. Anyone with information regarding the case is asked to contact troopers at the Jasper post at 812-482-1441.
