Brazen smash-and-grab suspects loot Chicago exotic store, steal millions in in merchandise

Armed smash-and-grab looters broke into a high-end exotic car dealership in Chicago, stealing millions of dollars in watches.

“We’re here to run a legitimate business, not be a western shootout,” Joe Perillo, co-owner of Gold Coast Exotic Motor Cars, told ABC7.

Two men reportedly entered the dealership, which boasts a showroom of Lamborghinis and Bentleys, around noon on Saturday. One man was armed with a gun and stood by the entrance of the dealership while the other man used a hammer to smash display cases and allegedly stole about eight luxury watches, Fox 32 reported.

“He was smart enough not to raise the gun, because my people had guns,” said Perillo. “If he raised that gun, he would have been shot, we’d probably be in court defending ourselves.”
