FCSO seeks three suspects after string of stolen vehicles

FLORENCE COUNTY, SC (WMBF) Deputies with the Florence County Sheriff's Office are investigating the theft of several vehicles from a TV Road car dealership overnight Monday, after one of those vehicles has been recovered.

Sometime between Monday night and Tuesday morning, several vehicles were stolen from a dealership on TV Road in Florence. Three vehicles were also stolen from a Pamplico Highway dealership during that same time. The three vehicles from the Pamplico Highway dealership have since been recovered, said Michael Nunn with the Florence County Sheriff's Office.

Only one of the vehicles from the TV Road dealership has been found in Lake City at a used car dealership, where deputies noticed another vehicle from that dealership to be missing.

At each dealership, the same method of entry and theft was used, leading Florence County investigators to believe the thefts are connected.

Investigators are now looking for a black Hyundai, a burgundy Taurus and a burgundy Lexus believed to have stolen license tags. Investigators are also looking for three black male suspects in connection to these thefts, and hope to provide further descriptions and identities soon.

Anyone with information regarding these incidents is asked to contact Florence County Sheriff's Office at 843-665-2121, extension 438 or Crime Stoppers of the Pee Dee at 1-888-CRIME-SC. Tips can be given anonymously.
