A stolen truck from Missouri rammed into a fence at a Nashville dealership early Monday morning to steal three motorcycles.
Authorities are looking into the theft at Holzhauer’s Auto and Motorsports, 17933 Holzhauer Automall Dr., after the vehicle crashed on the property shortly after midnight. Surveillance video revealed the unknown suspects left with the bikes heading north on State Route 127.
According to police, similar incidents have been reported at other dealerships in the St. Louis area. The white Dodge Ram used in the crash was taken from Hillsboro, MO, which is located south of St. Louis.
