RV dealership broken into over the weekend

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, WA - Yakima police are searching for three burglars who broke into Central Washington RV early Saturday morning. Although the individuals got away they were caught on camera by, Jason Carroll, President of the dealership. 

Carroll said he got a warning around 4:08 a.m. on Saturday that there was movement on his property. The notification came from one of the motion sensing cameras on his property. He said that the burglars cut through the part of his fence that is close to the freeway so that they could enter his property. 

Once inside the individuals attempted to break into about 11 RVs damaging the doors beyond repair. Carroll said that replacing the doors will cost up to $900 per RV based on its brand and manufacturer.  

This is also not the first time that his dealership has been broken into. Since it opened last April there have been 6 break-ins at his property resulting in Carroll upgrading his security. 

"We have set-up a lot of lights, and have cameras all over waiting for them to come back, along with two large German Shepherds that are out here," said Carroll. 

The break-in not only affects Carroll but also affects his customers as well, because some of the RVs that were broken into at his dealership belong to them. Carroll said that with the doors and with what was stolen he is looking at a total loss of $7,100. In addition he is also offering a $2,000 reward for the arrest of the three burglars.
