The owner of Eagle Motors in southwest Detroit is asking for your help after a thief took off with a used car from the dealership early Saturday morning.

Waynard Shreve has owned Eagle Motors for the last four years and says its a family business.

He gave the suspect a set of keys and said to come back after the suspect was done looking at the car. When the suspect returned, he swapped out the keys, giving Shreve a different set.

The man came back on Saturday morning as they were prepping the dealership to open. One of the employees looked out the window and saw the car start up. The employee thought it was another worker.

Instead, it was the thief making off with the 2006 gray Chevy Impala SS. Shreve believes it was the same guy who was in the dealership on Friday night.
