HAMPTON, Va. – Police have identified three people suspected of stealing vehicles from a Hampton Chevrolet car dealership.

It happened just after 3 a.m. on May 24.

Three suspects broke into the dealership, located in the 1000 block of West Mercury Boulevard. The suspects came into the dealership by breaking into one of the back doors. Once there were inside, they stole the keys to multiple vehicles and drove the vehicles out of the dealership lot.

Two of the stolen vehicles have been found, but they’re still looking for a gray 2011 Chevrolet Cruz.
