One Man, Half A Million Dollars In Damaged Luxury Cars
Man keys 12 high-end vehicles at dealership for 'twisted thrill'
Dealership owner T.J. Norris spoke to KFOR in Oklahoma City. He said he couldn't believe his eyes.
"While everyone was at church, he came up here and walked the lot and keyed 12 of our vehicles," Norris said.
In the footage, a man can be seen with something in his hand circling round the cars to deeply scratch every side.
The cars damaged were higher-end rides; a Maserati, Porsche and Escalade had their paint scratched on all sides and will need to be completely repainted. Due to the high-end nature of the models damaged, Norris said the repair cost is going to be very high.
"What's disgusting about some of these high lines is, of course, the cost to fix them," he said. "Some of these will cost us over $10,000 to repaint the car much less looking at the diminished value and now we have a bad Carfax."
None of Norris's employees recognized the man as a disgruntled customer. They're hoping releasing the security video will help police track the man down.
Norris said he believes this was all about a twisted thrill and not just a one-time deal.
"I don't think this was a first or last time," he said.
