Detroit Police are searching for two robbers who targeted a car dealership and repair shop on the west side early Monday morning.

The break-in was caught on surveillance video. The two guys spent more than two hours at Motor City Cars Sales on Warren Avenue.

This all went down around three in the morning.

The thieves stole $12,000, 40 sets of car keys, and dozens of car titles.

The owner rushed to the store after watching the break-in from his cell phone at home. He came face-to-face with one of the robbers, and pulled out his gun, but decided not to shoot.

Ammar Al Jawadi says, "Didn't know if he was going to kill me, or I was going to kill him. I didn't know nothing."

He tells 7 Action News his business has been robbed four times during the last month, twice in the last three days.

Al Jawadi tell us, "I'm not sleeping, I'm not eating. Don't know what to do."

If you have any information, call Detroit Police.
