Canton dealership robbed of SUVs, investigation underway

CANTON, GA. - Cherokee County deputies are asking for the public's help to locate two SUVs that were stolen from a dealership in Canton Friday morning.

Around 6:18 a.m. Canton Police responded to an armed robbery at Shottenkirk Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram located at 200 Liberty Blvd.

Cherokee Sheriff's Office deputies were in the area and arrived quickly on the scene.

An employee told them that several black males confronted him and took several vehicles from the business. 
Deputies were able to locate one of the vehicles and attempted a traffic stop, but the driver didn't stop. The suspect wrecked the vehicle near the I-575 northbound on-ramp at Highway 92, then ran away from the scene.
