Re: Man keys luxury cars at dealership - what is wrong with people?

Well - a guy with nothing to loose it seems. Im sure he was either high and/or drunk - but that doesn't dismiss the damage. The company will be fine - insured im sure..... the man will not be caught, remembers nothing Im sure. If it is a man that is disgruntled and knew what he was doing, I hope he is caught and spends the equivalent time it takes to get each vehicle back to like new condition AND some in the correction system. With that said, I feel that the dealership will make money for the issue and will come ahead ten fold, thats what they do best - probably an inside job lol.

Norris is a used car dealer here, and tbh, they're kind of assholes in my experience. They specialize in "high end" cars that they sell at prices that are at times, way too expensive. I wouldn't be surprised if they pissed this guy off previously. Still a terrible thing though..

Re: Man keys luxury cars at dealership - what is wrong with people?

I wonder if dealerships have some kind of insurance that cover things like this?

Bad Karma headed his way. Over $500,000.00 in damage and a $2500.00 reward?

Re: Man keys luxury cars at dealership - what is wrong with people?

After looking at the video I have decided to scrap all my cameras and upgrade to 1080P
And more of them. So that I have both high view and straight on shots of the faces.
That camera, and most others I have seen posted are nearly useless to identify someone.

That's just wonton destruction, ugh, I HATE that... but the math doesn't add up.

12 cars, $10,000 each to fix = $120,000. Nowhere near $500,000

Re: Man keys luxury cars at dealership - what is wrong with people?

Not to hijack this thread but here's a Warwick RI autobody shop owner drumming up business for his own shop caught keying cars at a local dealership....

Caught on camera!

I'm glad someone else besides me caught this and now the dealer should be charged with insurance fraud....Maybe they can share the same cell....
