GREENFIELD — Two car thieves helped themselves to new wheels early Monday after smashing the showroom window at Dellen Automotive.

Video surveillance of the theft shows two people, a male and a female, breaking into the business in the 2600 block of West Main Street around 4 a.m. after being dropped off by someone driving a light-colored Volkswagen Beetle. The pair smashed the showroom window on the building’s west side with a rock, police said.

The thieves stayed in the business for about three minutes before making off with two sets of keys from the car lot’s key board.

The pair stole a dark blue 2011 Chevrolet Camaro and a light blue 2011 four-door Chevrolet Cruze. Neither car had license plates.

One suspect is described as a slender, light-skinned black male. The second suspect was a dark-haired female, possibly shorter than 5 feet, wearing a red baseball cap, sweater and knee-high boots. Video surveillance did not capture a front view of the female, so police were unable to determine her race.

The pair went west on U.S. 40 from the car lot.

Someone who came to clean the business before it opened for the day found the broken window around 6:50 a.m., police said.
