Employees of Hertz rental car, 629 W. Madison St. in Oak Park, arrived at work at 7:30 a.m. on March 29 to find a smashed front door and 15 cars missing from the rear parking lot, according to Oak Park police.

Police said in a news release that the thieves broke through the glass front door sometime overnight, forced open a storage box that contained the keys to the rental cars and used them to steal the vehicles.

Thieves then cut the lock to the security gate to the parking lot to gain access to the vehicles.

The business closed at about 6:30 p.m. on March 28.

Police did not have a combined value of the vehicles.
