Thieves break into La Jolla auto dealership

Burglars broke into this Bentley auto dealership on La Jolla Boulevard early Monday morning.

Burglars broke into a luxury auto dealership early Monday morning, Nov. 11, making off with hundreds of thousands of dollars in luxury wristwatches.

Officers were notified that a burglary alarm was going off at Symbolic Motor Car Company in the 7440 block of La Jolla Boulevard at 2:51 a.m., according to San Diego police Officer Dan Lasher.

An employee at the store told La Jolla Light the robbers unsuccessfully attempted to break in through a side door before smashing the front window. The thieves tipped over and smashed a stand-alone display case filled with four or five Breitling Bentley watches valued at $500,000 to $100,000 each that the dealership was selling on consignment.

San Diego Police Northern Division Captain Brian Ahearn said police are trying to confirm whether surveillance video is available to assist with the investigation.

    An auto dealership cannot be “robbed.” Only a person can be robbed. This was a breaking and entering, aka burglary.

    And of course they got away with it — this is La Jolla and SDPD are almost never in town. They are almost always in PB, unless they happen to get called to La Jolla, which, by the time they arrive, is always too late.

    We need the City of La Jolla. Local solutions for local problems.
