It’s a Corvette owner’s worst nightmare or at least one of them.
You leave your prized 2016 Stingray at a dealership for routine service, and then you’re told it’s been stolen while there.
That bad dream just happened to Ronnie Woods, whose 2016 blue Corvette coupe was among more than a dozen vehicles swiped at three dealerships in Jacksonville, Fla., during a wild spree on May 17.
According to the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office, Woods’ Corvette was one of eight cars stolen from Nimnicht Chevrolet that night, and more than $4,400 worth of tools was taken there, too.
The dealership sent this statement to actionnewsjax.com:
“Nimnicht Chevrolet is very sympathetic to our customers who have been affected by the burglary at our dealership. We are currently working with JSO and the customer’s insurance companies to help resolve this matter. Anybody that has any information on the burglary of Nimnicht Chevrolet that can help us identify these individuals please call JSO.”
Right next door, thieves took six cars off the Duval Ford lot, and a Jeep was stolen from a sister dealership, making a total of 15 vehicles missing at the three locations.
So far, only four of the vehicles have been located, including a truck from Duval Ford that was discovered at an apartment complex. Interestingly enough, a Chevy key was found inside that Ford truck, a key that belonged to a black truck stolen from Nimnicht.
Unfortunately, Woods’ Corvette still has not been located. He’s asking the public to be on the lookout for the Stingray, with Florida tag number HZC9E.
