Used cars were stolen from a small auto shop in north Houston

HOUSTON (KTRK) -- Six cars were stolen from a small auto shop and car lot Sunday morning and the thieves got away by using one of the stolen vehicles to plow through the shop's gate.

It happened at Melesio Auto Sales on Airline Drive near Aldine Mail Route.

Alejandro Melesio, the owner, said he discovered the missing vehicles when arrived to work Monday morning.

"I want to find these guys. It's not fair," he said.

In surveillance video, six men can be seen entering the property and then breaking inside the office.

One man, who appears to be a lookout, stays just outside the gate.

The others appear to search for items to steal, ultimately taking equipment like a weed eater, power washer, vacuum and more before taking off in the stolen vehicles.

"It's not right. I'm trying to work hard and make this work but these people (are) making it hard for me," he said.

Some faces are visible in the surveillance video.

The Harris County Sheriff's Office is investigating. They've already recovered a few of the cars and are searching for the rest.

Melesio hopes the thieves are caught and his property is recovered. He said they took the keys to all of his cars and he's afraid they will return to take more vehicles.

If you have any information on the suspects, you're asked to call Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS. null
