Several suspects are being sought by Gwinnett County police in connection with the theft of nearly $400,000 in customer cars from Audi Gwinnett near Duluth.

Cpl. Deon Washington said at least 12 cars were stolen between 3 and 6 a.m. Oct. 29 from the dealership, which is located at 3180 Satellite Boulevard. Officials are not sure if there were additional people involved who helped the suspects move the cars, or if they used a transport trailer to haul the vehicles away.

Washington said the suspects got the keys from a broken service area lock box though.

“At this point, none of the vehicles have been recovered and police do not have police reports for all of the thefts,” Washington said in a statement. “Video surveillance captured the suspects walking on the property. They are wearing masks. One of the suspects appears to be a black male talking on a cell phone in the service area.”

Police released surveillance video that shows the suspects walking onto the property as well as their activities in the service area.

Police reports show some of the stolen vehicles include a black 2014 S6, a white 2013 Q5, a black 2013 S4, a white 2013 A6, a blue 2013 A7 and a black 2015 A6.

The 2013 A7 also had a baby seat and a Windows Surface Pro laptop computer in it, according to a police report. The 2015 A6 had a Chateau Elan sticker on the front passenger side window, a peach pass sticker, a Purdue University license plate frame and a dent on the rear passenger side door.

Washington said anyone who has information about the thefts is asked to call detectives at 770-513-5300. They can also call Crime Stoppers at 404-577-8477, or send information to www.crimestoppersatlanta.org, while remaining anonymous. Crime Stoppers tipsters can be eligible for rewards of up to $2,000 though for information that leads to an arrest and indictment.

Tipsters should reference Case Numbers 17-101358, 17-101369, 17-101359, 17-101342, 17-101347 and 17-101320.
