DETROIT (WJBK) - An auto repair shop in northwest Detroit was the latest target of some thieves, but all their acts were caught on surveillance video.

The suspects broke into A-One Auto Sales auto repair shop and used car lot along West Warren and Evergreen avenues.

Co-owner Brad Kimble says the suspects entered the lot, despite a rock solid 12-foot high steel bar fence. They cut through one of the bars, giving the two men just enough room to squeeze through.

The suspects stole three catalytic converters, wheels, rims and other car parts. Kimble estimates they made about $300.

Two of the vehicles affected belonged to customers. The third vehicle belongs to a co-owner.

Owners say their lot has been hit five times in the last month.
