Three Arrested in Carmel Dealer Theft
CARMEL, Ind.--Three people wanted for breaking into and stealing vehicles from a car dealership in Carmel have been arrested.
An officer with the Carmel Police Department saw multiple vehicles leaving the Penske Chevy dealership near 96th Street and Keystone Avenue at about 2:15 am Tuesday morning. The vehicles ended up on I-465 and ignited a police chase where speeds reached close to 100 mph.
The chase ended shortly after it began. Police arrested 2 teenagers and 1 adult. The adult is identified as Gerron Arnes Delaney, 24. All 3 people arrested are from St. Louis.
Police say the suspects smashed the windows to gain access to key boxes attached to the windows.
Penske staff members said nearly 40 vehicles were damaged. Penske believes the thieves caused at least $90,000 in damage.
Penske said they got into their gated lot because of construction on Keystone Parkway, which left an opening to the lot.
More suspects may be at large. The Carmel Police Department is continuing to investigate the incident.
