On the way to work I often take a route that has me driving past a new car storage area. Of course the lot is fenced and there's limited access through a normally locked gate but I often also see at least one security guard in his patrol vehicle standing watch over the entrance/exit.


Here's an image of the lot from Google Maps satellite view:

Maybe FCA needs to do something similar?

The idea that they got 4 cars at once tells me this wasn't a "smash and grab"......sounds like the thieves knew what they were doing and came with a plan. Even with keys in side this is still a pretty BOLD MOVE.

Someone posted 19 cars worth $1.2 million.......the real amazing story here for me is found in recognizing the low affordable pricing on these cars.

700+HP as recently as 10 years ago was pure super car level power that might well have been priced at $1.2 million for just 1 car.

this smacks of others knowing the lack of security measures at that location + leaving the fobs inside the vehicles.

to have it happen multiple times just underscores that nobody has implemented better measures to prevent this.
