Oct. 16, 2013 – Authorities said that a vandal damaged dozens of cars at dealerships on Browns Bridge Road early Monday morning.
Chris Ellison, operations manager for the Carriage Automotive Group in Gainesville, told the Times more than 32 cars were keyed at the Nissan dealership.
Ellison told them, “The gentleman walked on the lot at 1:22 in the morning and keyed, or scratched, 32 of our cars, basically along the trunks of a lot of them; some along the side.”
He estimated the damage at $20,000, saying the dealership had suffered vandalism in the past but never “to this degree.”
Authorities said damage also was done at Milton Martin Toyota and four cars were keyed at Milton Martin Honda.
