Three cars – two of which are believed to be those stolen Nov. 15 from the ADESA Auto Auction on Old Ox Road – were spotted on surveillance video along with three suspects and authorities are now trying to identify and locate the men, according to the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office.
The video was released to the public last week, along with information about cars that have been reported stolen from the auction house on Nov. 13, Nov 15 and Jan. 8. Two of the cars in the video were stolen Nov. 15, according to an LCSO report. A third car in the video was reported stolen in Prince George’s County, Md.
Investigators suggested the men could be part of auto theft ring that’s operating throughout the Washington, D.C., region.
The video shows three suspects arriving at a gas station/convenience store in the stolen vehicles, including a black BMW X6, a red Audi S6 and an SUV. A black Audi A6 was taken from ADESA Nov 13 and two black Mercedes Benz sedans were taken Jan. 8.
The suspects can be seen in the video changing license plates on the cars.
A Florida man was arrested after he allegedly took a customer’s corvette for a date-night joy ride. Ronald Francis Kelly, 49, works for an auto transport company and was in Pearland on a two-day layover when the incident was reported. Pictured here: Pearland Police call the auto transport company to ask if Kelly (pictured seated at right) is authorized to drive the customer’s vehicle. The company said no; Kelly was only authorized to load and unload customer’s cars. The owner was also contacted who requested charges be filed.

This is on zero2turbo.com: An employee from a transport company decided to have one last spin in the prancing horse before loading her when things went horribly wrong. The car went out of control at around 140 mph (225 km/h) before losing control, slamming into a post and then breaking into two parts. The driver apparently ended up in a coma in hospital and I think the passenger suffered extensive injuries. This occurred in Birmingham, Alabama.
