Truck tailgates stolen from Lexington dealership

By  | 

LEXINGTON, Va. (WDBJ) -- The Magic City Ford dealership in Lexington experienced a theft this past Tuesday, but nobody stole any cars. Instead, thieves stole just the tailgates off of four pickup trucks in a lower display lot away from the main building of the dealership. If you know what you’re doing, the tailgates are fairly easy to remove, but they are also quite expensive.

“In my ten-plus years, this is the first time I have seen this or heard about it," says Jeremy Moore, Sales Manager at the dealership. "Recently we have found out that other dealerships have had this same thing happen to them in different parts of the state.”

Magic City Ford is offering a $5,000 CASH REWARD to any information that leads to an arrest.
