A local car dealership was burglarized Friday night in the 1000 block of Dallas Drive, according to a Denton police report. 

Police found that the burglar or burglars entered North Texas Autos by prying open the front door with "a small multi-tool," setting off the building's burglar alarm. 

When officers arrived, the alarm at the dealership was still sounding and four vehicles in the parking lot had been burglarized, the report said. At least one of the vehicles was damaged. 

No arrests were mentioned in the report. Police reportedly have security camera footage of the incident.
