Fiberglass or not, Corvettes are tougher than you think.

Someone used a Sebring Silver 1996 Collector’s Edition Corvette as a ramming tool to break into a Louisville, Ky., gun shop early Wednesday morning.

Police from LMPD’s Seventh Division answered the call about 5 a.m. in response to an alarm at Tilford’s Discount Guns in the 3400 block of Fern Valley Road.

The Corvette was determined to have been stolen and was left at the scene by the perpetrator(s) after it had been used to break through a door at the business, doing heavy damage to the door and the concrete blocks around it. Ironically, the thieves didn’t bother breaking through windows with bars on them.

After breaking into the store, they then stole an undetermined number of firearms and fled the scene.

TV reports show a surveillance camera that hopefully was working and could play a role in the apprehension of the suspects.

If you have information about the break-in, Louisville Metro Police ask you to call them at 502-574-5673.
