The SSPD CID received communication from the FBI regarding a stolen Mercedes-Benz from the RBM dealership. The FBI agent informed CID that there may be a new owner for this stolen vehicle. He further indicated that the FBI is in the process of obtaining the audio and video surveillance recording from the DeKalb County Department of Motor Vehicles, as they believe a person of interest was on scene registering this stolen Mercedes with an altered vehicle identification number.
