Police recover two Hyundais and a Kia stolen from dealerships in Greece
GREECE, N.Y. — Greece Police say people tried to steal two cars from a Hyundai dealership and a car from a Kia dealership, both on West Ridge Road, on Wednesday morning.
Officers got a tip about a suspicious car leaving Matthews Hyundai. They later recovered two stolen Hyundais. In addition, Rochester Police found a Kia that was stolen from Matthews Kia.
Detectives are still investigating both incidents. It’s unclear if police have any suspects in custody.
Local leaders have raised alarms about an increase in thefts for Kia and Hyundai models because of how-to videos circulating on TikTok. Leaders also say the two automakers failed to add proper anti-theft technology, making the cars easy to hotwire with a USB cable.
