Grand Rapids – Nearly two dozen vehicles were stolen in Grand Rapids, spoiling a weekend grand opening for a used car business, police and the owner said.

“I feel violated. This sets us way back,” said Don Miller, owner of Autowest in Grand Rapids.

Thieves threw rocks through a window late Thursday or early Friday and grabbed keys to all 60 vehicles, Miller said.

Twenty-two vehicles were stolen, though at least three were recovered, including two at a Taco Bell across the street, general manager Dan Reese told WOOD-TV. The value of the loss is estimated at $300,000.

Security cameras were not recording video at the time of the break-in.
