MOUNT PLEASANT – The Mount Pleasant Police Department is investigating the theft of vehicles from three auto dealers here last Friday.

The dealerships are Palmen Motors, 8320 Washington Ave.; Frank Boucher Chevrolet, 8600 Washington Ave., and McFarland Auto, 7901 Washington Ave.

Mount Pleasant Police were called to Palmen last Friday to investigate a burglary. Officers found smashed out windows and heavy damage in the dealership and broken windows on “multiple vehicles” in the car lot, according to a department news release.
