Dealership: Man caught on tape stealing BMW

ELIZABETH - An Elizabeth car dealership says a man was caught on tape stealing a BMW off its lot.

Effect Auto on Route One has a recording of the entire robbery, dealership management says. The man appeared to be waiting for a car to show up for detailing. When a 2004 BMW rolled in, he immediately got inside and sped off.

Sales Manager Nester Martinez says one of the workers stepped away from the vehicle for only a minute while it was being detailed and then the car was gone.

The dealership is offering a $500 reward for information that leads to the recovery of the car, and hopefully the arrest of the suspect.
