Lamarque Ford`s surveillance cameras catch a late night Mother`s Day burglar ripping off tires and rims inside the securely gated back lot.

Robbed ‘twice’ now, owner Ronnie Lamarque produced his own made-for-TV Crime Stoppers commercial hoping someone recognizes this suspect.

Lamarque says the same suspect is the one who robbed the dealership earlier this month, “You can see where we patched the fence.  He has very distinguished blotches on his head. He has some type of problem with his scalp.”

Larmarque suspects the tire and rim thief, who spent more than an hour on the back lot, had an accomplice waiting in the front on the lookout, “Letting him know what`s going on because he sure acted like he owned the joint.”

The crime fighting car dealer says when the business gets robbed, insurance goes up and job security for his 125 employees goes down, “Deductibles get out of line guess what happens? I may have to lay people off. And those 125 families need to know this place is secure and safe.”

Lamarque says he`ll spend whatever it takes on better cameras and television airtime to make this repeat criminal  pay, “It`s got to stop. This is our territory. So buddy, your days are numbered. Enough is enough. End of story.”

He says the suspect drove away with the stolen goods in a silver four door pick up.

There is $2500 dollar reward.
