Looters Snag 50+ Cars Including $100K Hellcats, Chargers, Challengers, And Trackhawks [View all]


More than 50 new high-performance Mopar models were stolen from a California Dodge dealership after looters shattered the showroom windows to snatch keys.

There's no denying that 2020 is a year for the history books that nobody in this lifetime could forget even if they tried. While we are still dealing with a global pandemic that has been spreading like a wildfire doused with gasoline, protests have turned into violent riots across the country following the recent death of George Floyd after his neck was pinned by the knee of Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin during an arrest. Businesses, apartments, police stations, you name it, have been completely destroyed and/or set ablaze in cities everywhere. Adding insult to injury, people have turned to looting and ravaging businesses, even the small local stores that are already trying to stay afloat due to COVID-19 and the plummeting economy. One particular Dodge dealership located in San Leandro, California, was a recent target of such mayhem. Not only was the dealership heavily damaged, but more than 50 of their high-performance vehicles were stolen and driven right off the lot. That includes almost every single one of their Dodge Challenger Hellcats worth $100,000 apiece.

“Right now we’re thinking 50 [vehicles] … Gone," said Carlos Hidalgo, owner of the dealership. "We have trackers on them so we’re seeing which ones are out there. They’re running around everywhere.”

The town of San Leandro, set in between Hayward and Oakland, saw its fair share of the chaos. As mentioned above, their local Dodge dealership suffered a great deal as their showroom windows were smashed out allowing easy access to the keys for the most valuable vehicles on the lot. A large group of looters were able to take off with over 50 performance models and that includes almost every single $100k Dodge Challenger Hellcat in the dealership's inventory.
