Raw footage of the theft of six Dodge Challenger Hellcats from a dealership in Somerset, Kentucky, last Wednesday shows what looks like a scene out of a movie.
The thieves made off with six brand-new Hellcats—four from the showroom floor and two from the dealer’s lot—in just 40 seconds. Don Franklin Chrysler Dodge Jeep dealership manager Adam Bryant told WKYT he believes the fast theft was an inside job:
“They came in through the rear garage door. They had some kind of idea of how our security system worked it looked like,” Bryant said.
Bryant believes it took at least seven people 40 seconds to drive off with all six Hellcats, each worth around $95,000.
“And they were gone. Once they tripped the alarm, it takes 60 seconds before it starts alerting. They were gone 20 seconds before the alarm started to go off. The response time of the police was like three minutes. It was really good,” Bryant said.
Five of the six cars have been recovered, some a few towns away and even as far as a state away. Each Hellcat retails for roughly $95,000.
