TROY, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

A man was caught on surveillance camera stealing tires from new Chrysler vehicles at a dealership in Troy, Mo. that were going to be featured in the St. Louis Auto Show.

Surveillance cameras showed the thief pull into the parking lot at Behlmann Chrysler Dodger around 3:45 a.m. Wednesday before targeting a 2016 Chrysler 200C and Chrysler 300S.

“He loosened all the lugnuts, jacked the cars up, took eight sets of tires and wheels and then left,” said Detective Tony Stewart with Troy police.

The man was alone and used hand tools, police said. The entire incident took less than 30 minutes. Police are not sure if the man scouted out the lot before the theft.

“He took roughly $7800 worth of merchandise from the dealership,” Stewart said.

If you recognize the man, please call police. Authorities believe he was driving a charcoal-gray Dodge Charger.
