Metro-East car dealers hit hard by thieves

(KMOV) -- It’s been a busy month for car dealers in the Metro-East, but not because of good business.

Thieves have hit three “buy here, pay here” lots in Cahokia.

A total of 20 cars were taken.

Police arrested three suspects in one of those cases, but dealers are out thousands of dollars.

The Auto Theft Task Force, a group of metro-east detectives, says they added patrols in the areas hit hard by thieves.
