New, $110,000 Mercedes stolen from dealership

December 5, 2012 

A 2013 Mercedes-Benz S550V worth $110,500 disappeared from the lot of a Bluffton dealership over the weekend, according to the Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office.

Employees at the Mercedes-Benz of Hilton Head on Fording Island Road discovered the vehicle had been stolen Monday. It had been parked in the front corner lot of the business and was last seen at closing time Friday, said Sgt. Robin McIntosh.

The dealership had the only two known keys for the vehicle. Employees reported that a group of three men had recently been shown the vehicle and may have returned a “dummy” key to dealership and kept a working copy of the key, McIntosh said.

As of today, the car has not been recovered.
