Police are investigating what they're calling a "larceny spree" in which expensive car parts were stolen overnight from luxury vehicles parked in lots belonging to dealerships Mercedes-Benz of Greenwich and Miller Motor Cars, both on West Putnam Avenue.
According to police, a set of four AMG rims was stolen from a 2012 Mercedes-Benz CL-63 while the car was parked in a rear lot at 315 West Putnam Avenue belonging to Mercedes-Benz of Greenwich. Police said the car belonged to one of the dealership's customers.
Police said the culprits didn't bother to use blocks and let the car's axles sink into the sand after they took each wheel. They also left the lug nuts behind, police said. No value was given for the rims and tires.
Police said around the same time someone stole four wheels from a 2006 Porsche Carrera 4S that was parked in a lot at 273 West Putnam Avenue belonging to Miller Motor Cars. This car was found partially up on blocks, police said.
Police said the used car belonged to the dealership. Again, no value was given for the rims and tires.
Police added that same culprits had apparently attempted to remove the wheels from a used 2011 Bentley Continental GT parked in the Miller Motor Cars' lot. Police also learned someone had removed the horn cover on the steering wheel of a 1970 Fiat parked in the lot, presumably in an attempt to remove the steering wheel.
Police said if the culprits are caught they will likely face charges of first degree larceny due to the high value of the items stolen.
