Investigators say additional video shows the suspect first getting into a Nissan Frontier at the lot. Then they say the suspect got out and entered a Nissan Rogue.

He then drove the Rouge across the parking lot, got out and broke into and took items from three vehicles — a Dodge Charger, a Dodge Ram pickup and a Jeep Commander — before leaving the dealership in the stolen SUV, according to investigators.

Anyone with information about the suspect is encouraged to call the Hamlet Police Department at 910-582-2551 or Richmond County Crime Stoppers at 910-997-5454.
