Car stolen after auto shop break-in
SAN CARLOS, Calif. -- A car stolen from an auto repair shop in San Carlos early Wednesday morning has yet to be found, a San Mateo County Sheriff's spokesman said.
San Mateo County Sheriff's deputies responded to the San Carlos German Motor Works at 430 El Camino Real at 1:03 a.m. to find a side window smashed out and the rear roll-up garage door open, San Mateo County Sheriff's Sgt. Tony Mariucci said.
Deputies found several tools at the scene to help break the garage door lock. They believe the suspect or suspects smashed out the window and entered the building. The suspects then unlocked the roll-up garage door, which activated the alarm, Mariucci said.
No suspects were found at the scene.
The owner came to the shop and informed deputies a car was missing from one of the work bays. The keys to the unlocked vehicle had been left on the dashboard, Mariucci said.
A broadcast was sent out regarding the stolen gray 2004 BMW 330I with California license plate No. 5FAX045.
