Local car dealer robbed, thinking about leaving Seattle

A local car dealer’s frustrations are growing after being robbed several times.

The owner of Wild West car dealership in Seattle released surveillance video that shows alleged robbers arriving in a Mercedes Benz.

They went into the office to try to find the keys to the cars outside.

The owner says he’s gone through the same incident many times before and even has a collection of Seattle Police Department business cards left by officers for every report he’s previously made. He says he has yet to see anyone held accountable, though.

He’s reached out to SPD but he says they apparently have no interest in coming out, instead, asking him to fill out an online form.

The owner says he is so angry about the lack of response he’s thinking about selling his car business and moving out of Seattle.
