Police pursuing leads in vehicle theft

"We have investigators trying to track down all the leads possible at this point," said Dubuque Police Chief Mark Dalsing. 

Dalsing says the department is trying to figure out exactly when those vehicles were stolen. 

"We’re reviewing our traffic cameras, based on our network of cameras, if nothing else we’ll be able to figure out a time frame better and nail down routes." said Dalsing. He says most stolen vehicles Dubuque are used cars. 

"I can’t think of a time we’ve had new cars stolen at this rate," said Dalsing. 

April Finnin-Rink with Finnin Kia says the dealership will be looking to add more security measures to the lot. 

"In the last couple years, it seems like every year we’re adding additional security cameras inside and outside the building," said Finnin-Rink. She worries how the thefts will affect their insurance costs. 

"With a claim in this case, we’re going to have 100 thousand dollars worth of vehicles stolen, so its going to affect our costs when it comes time to renew," said Finnin-Rink. 

Finnin-Rink says they try to keep their deductible high to keep insurance costs low. 

"I’m hoping between our security footage, some on Highway 20, and maybe a gas station within 20 miles we can piece things together," said Finnin-Rink.

While this case is still under investigation, police say they plan to keep a close eye not only on those dealerships but all of the ones in the surrounding area.
