The Garrett County Sheriff’s Office is continuing to investigate the March 30 theft that occurred at the business at 11782 National Pike at 4:30 a.m., when the suspects stole complete sets of wheels and tires from two 2013 Ford Edge vehicles parked just outside the dealership.

The suspect vehicle contained a regular cab with an added on sun visor, chrome/steel mirror on driver’s door, chrome rear and front bumpers, no running boards, no front tag and possibly having minor damage or paint damage on the lower center area of the driver’s door. The vehicle is possibly a two-wheel drive model.
