(KMOV.com) -- Authorities are looking for a person who may have posed as mechanics to steal a vehicle in Kirkwood.

The seller of the vehicle posted an ad on Craigslist and a potential buyer wanted the car inspected at the Parktown Audi and Porsche Dealership on Manchester Road.

The seller said he took the vehicle to the dealership and was greeted by a man who gave him a business card and even a ride home while the car was supposed to be inspected.

However, police said the man wasn’t with the dealership and it was all a set-up to steal the vehicle.

No arrests have been made in the case.
