Liverpool thieves get away with $500,000 in cars

Volkswagen Mk5 Golf R32 - similar to one of the cars stolen in Sydney

Resembling scenes from a Hollywood movie a gang of 13 thieves stole 12 cars yesterday in south-west Sydney.

The cars stolen, which included two Volkswagen Golf R32s (similar to above), a Volkswagen Passat, a Holden Commodore SV6, a Subaru Impreza and a Mazda 3, were valued at around $500,000. They were taken from the McGrath’s yard in Shepard Street, Liverpool.

The thieves are reported to have stormed into the yard demanding keys from the startled staff on the premises. Speaking to the Daily Telegraph one of the staff said, “They just came in and said: ‘Get the f*** down and throw your phones away’.”
