Several high-end cars were stolen from Imperial Exotic Motors, a luxury car dealership in Hamilton, OH, leaving the owner and local police scrambling to solve the crime. The Hamilton Police Department is now actively investigating the break-in, which occurred on a quiet Christmas Eve morning.

The thieves gained entry into the dealership through a back door. Their target was clear---the most valuable cars on the lot. Among the stolen vehicles were a BMW, a Mercedes-Benz and a Porsche, collectively valued at more than $110,000. The loss is a significant blow to the dealership, especially with the critical tax season approaching.

Sam Abukhas, owner of Imperial Exotic Motors, described the incident as a hard hit to his business. He received an alert from the security system and watched the theft unfold in real-time through security camera footage. Despite rushing to the scene, he arrived too late---the culprits had already vanished with the cars.

The stolen vehicles were not equipped with GPS tracking, raising concerns that they could be dismantled for parts before recovery is possible. The thieves also made away with keys to seven other cars, potentially planning future thefts.

Abukhas said he might forgive the perpetrators if they were to return the stolen vehicles. Nonetheless, the dealership is taking no chances in the future. Enhanced security measures are being planned, including the possibility of adding fencing around the premises to deter similar incidents.

The Hamilton Police Department is urging anyone with information about the theft at Imperial Exotic Motors to come forward.
