ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

A patch of thefts are plaguing Dogtown used car dealerships. 

St. Louis City Police are investigating several situations occurring in the last week.

"It's really taking a toll on us," said Joe Stratton, GM of Roger Wilson Motors on Manchester Avenue. "We're a small family-owned business, every penny counts."

Stratton told News 4 someone stole a 2003 dark blue Dodge Dakota right off of their lot.

Just two blocks down the street of Roger Wilson Motors at Joe-K Used Cars, thieves left a large hole in the safe before running off with over $1,000.

"We're just tired of it," said Stratton. "We're here to make a living and provide a service if possible and this doesn't make it easy."

Officers have made two arrests connected to the Joe-K cases, 21-year-old Corion McMillan and 18-year-old Jameer Scott. They're still searching for other suspects.

Anyone with any information is asked to call St. Louis City Police.
