ENFIELD, CT (WFSB) -

When employees at Family Ford in Enfield came to work on Wednesday they noticed their tires were missing. Employees said it's not the first time they've been hit or other car dealerships in the area.

Police said it happened sometime in the middle of the night. Thieves came and stole tires and it didn't take long at all.

"Probably five minutes, two to three guys in a pickup truck, in and out,” Brian Rosenberg, who is a sales manager at Family Ford, said.

Rosenberg said the thieves knew what they were doing. Thieves jacked up the truck, put down cinderblocks and in minutes, the tires were gone.

The tires even had locks, but the thieves apparently had master keys, which they left neatly on the ground.

The ford dealership has had vandalism before, but this surprised them, considering the truck was parked in the front lot facing the street right under a light.

Police told Eyewitness News in three or four months ago, a few dealerships around the corner have also had their tires stolen.

The big 22-inch tires can cost up to $9,000 for a set of four.   

Rosenberg said they will " be a little more diligent” and if they “see something say something."

The dealership does have cameras. They are looking at video to see if they can get any clues on who did this incident.
