2 Ford Mustangs totaling nearly $200,000 stolen from Upson County dealership

ATLANTA, Ga. (Atlanta News First) – Police in Thomaston are investigating after thieves allegedly stole two Ford Mustangs worth a total of nearly $200,000 from the Southern Ford dealership in Thomaston.

A Ford Mustang GT500 Heritage and a blue Ford Mustang GT500 were both taken overnight on Friday.

“It’s really a special car, we’re one of the lucky dealers to have it,” said general manager Chip Richardson. “The Heritage was a numbered car; less than a thousand of them were built and everything was certified on it.”

According to Thomaston police, thieves broke into the showroom and took not only the cars, but the keys to most of the cars on the lot.

“I don’t think this was someone who came for a ride, they knew what they were looking for,” Chief Mike Richardson said. “And I don’t think they’re going to be cut anywhere, they’re going somewhere.”

The thieves disabled the security cameras, according to police.

For those running the dealership, it’s incredibly disappointing.

“We’re a small country town and normally nothing happens,” Chip Richardson said.

Investigators are asking anyone with information to call Thomaston police.

There is a $1,000 reward for any information leading to an arrest.
