ST. CHARLES COUNTY, Mo. – St. Charles County police are searching for suspects after luxury cars are stolen during an overnight break-in at the Mercedes Benz of Chesterfield dealership near Interstate 64 and Highway K close to O’Fallon.

Authorities are confirming that two vehicles were taken. Investigators are checking to see if the break-in could be connected to other recent car dealership break-ins.

St. Charles County police got the call about 3:15 a.m.

Val Joyner, a spokeswoman for the St. Charles County Police Department, says the investigation is still unfolding. However, she confirms that two Mercedes vehicles were stolen: one new and somebody’s personal vehicle.

Joyner says police are looking for two suspects but at this point, there are no detailed descriptions.

Joyner was not able to give details about how the suspects broke into the dealership. Our Fox 2 cameras did notice wood over a garage-like door.

The incident there is the latest case of a car dealership in the St. Louis area being broken into with vehicles stolen.

Dealerships in several other communities have been hit recently including in St. Peters, Ellisville, Ballwin, and Troy, Missouri.

At this point, no definitive connections have been made between the crimes. But police tell us detectives from different departments are in regular communication with each other about these types of cases. And that will likely be the case after this latest incident.

Several vehicles that were stolen from those other dealerships have been recovered.

Nobody is currently in custody, including in this most recent case.

We did reach out to officials with the Mercedes dealership. However, no one was able to give us a comment.

President Harry Truman said: “It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.” That spirit is alive and well at Fox 2. Our teamwork is on display each and every day.

Our news slogan is: “Coverage You Can Count On.” We quite frankly are too busy to worry about who gets the credit. Our main concern is serving the viewer.

We go where the stories take us. Whether it be Washington, D.C when a Belleville man opened fire during a congressional baseball game practice or to Puerto Rico where local Ameren crews restored power after more than 5 months in the dark.

Coverage You Can Count On means “Waking up your Day” with our top-rated morning show. From 4:00 am-10:00 am we are leading the way with breaking news. But our early morning crew also knows how to have some fun! Our strong commitment to the communities we serve is highlighted with our Friday neighborhood shows.

Our investigative unit consists of three reporters. Elliott Davis focuses on government waste, Chris Hayes is our investigative reporter, and Mike Colombo is our consumer reporter. They work in unison with the news department by sharing resources and ideas.

We continue to cover breaking news aggressively and relied on our seasoned journalists to make a difference with the stories we covered. The shooting of Arnold Police Officer Ryan O’Connor is just one example of that. Jasmine Huda was the only reporter who had exclusive access to the O’Connor family during his amazing rehabilitation in Colorado.

Last, but certainly not least, FOX 2 and KPLR 11 are committed to covering local politics. We host debates among candidates and have the most extensive presidential election coverage. Our commitment to politics isn’t just during an election year. We produce two political shows that air every weekend.
