The car is valued at $25,000, according to police.

Two flat-screen TVs and a DVR player were also stolen from the building.

“We consider the men persons of interest,” said BPD Detective Paul Shivers.

The men were driving a black Tahoe when they visited the plant Thursday, according to a police report filed by BPD patrolman Daniel Chandler.
