MASON, Ohio - Warren County investigators believe an international auto theft ring could be behind the theft of two high-end SUVs in the Tri-State.
Auto thieves stole two white 2012 Porsche Cayennes from Kings Auto Mall last November.
One of the vehicles is valued at $65,000 and the other at $85,000.
The Crime Stoppers reward for information is $2,500 which is more than typical cases.
"That's quite a bit more. I'm sure there's some contributions coming in towards that," said Sgt. Brandon Lacy of the Warren County Sheriff's Office.
Sgt. Lacy told 9 On Your Side that the thefts could have international ties.
"We want to find out who took these two Porches because we believe it's part of a larger ring of high end autos that are being taken," he said.
After the two Porsches were stolen a dealership in Louisville, Ky. came forward with information about thefts that happened the day before.
"Suspect descriptions matched our photos from ours were shown to some employees down in Louisville and they believe it's all the same people," said Sgt. Lacy.
The Porsches are still gone but the Range Rover in that case was found in a cargo container on the eastern seaboard headed overseas.
"Our suspects we are looking at in this were from the Chicago area so we've been in contact with Chicago authorities working with them trying to locate some individuals of interest in this but until the other we start getting more information from other agencies we just don't know," said Sgt. Lacy.
A homeland security investigation is also underway in this case.
Police say the suspects are believed to be from Chicago. Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (513) 352-3040.
