Police say early Sunday morning, a thief was caught on video stealing a vehicle and as many as 10 sets of keys from inside Top Notch Auto Repair shop on Southfield Road in Lincoln Park. The suspect crawled through a tiny window to get inside.

The black colored Dodge Charger he stole belongs to a local police officer, who says he's hoping the video will lead to an arrest. Police are considering the fact the suspect could live nearby.

The owner of the business tells Action News he's offering $500 for info that leads to the thief's arrest. Anyone with information is urged to call Lincoln Park Police right away.
