It is still a mystery to the owner of Köhler Auto and staff members of how suspects got away with a car while both keys are still at the dealership.

A baffling incident of theft occurred on Thursday, minutes after closing time at a used car sales dealership in Witbank, reports Witbank News.

According to Max Köhler, owner of Köhler Auto Witbank, as his daughter Anneke was about to leave the used car area, she was called back by the security guard.

The security guard informed her that he had just seen a white Volvo following a white Mercedes-Benz from that area.
