Kentwood police investigate another dealership break-in

Kent County

KENTWOOD, Mich. (WOOD) — Police from three different agencies are investigating a car dealership break-in.

It happened sometime overnight or this morning at Fox Ford Mazda on 28th Street SE. The Kent County Sheriff’s Department, Kentwood police and Grand Rapids police are looking into what happened.

Police have not said if anything was taken, but police on scene say the building was broken into. A glass repair company could be seen working on a back door Friday morning.

This is the latest in a string of break-ins at car dealerships around the Grand Rapids area this week, with four happening Wednesday night into Thursday

There have been many burglaries at West Michigan dealerships in the last few months. In June alone, more than 50 vehicles were taken from Kent and Ottawa county dealerships. Some of the stolen cars were later used in cellphone store break-ins.

The Kent County Sheriff’s Department said Friday that investigators from several agencies have arrested “numerous” juveniles in connection to the crimes.

The department also reminded businesses to keep taking safety precautions.
