PHILADELPHIA, July 23 (UPI) -- Philadelphia police said thieves made off with a pair of valuable luxury cars by breaking into an apartment and taking the key fobs.

Investigators said two men broke into the apartment about 1 a.m. Tuesday and took two big-screen TVs, a computer, nearly $1,500 in cash and the key fobs for a 2006 Lamborghini and a 2006 black Bentley, WPVI-TV, Philadelphia, reported Tuesday.

Police said the yellow Lamborghini Gallardo with a Batman logo in the back was found abandoned in the West Mount Airy section of the city just before 7 a.m. Tuesday.

"It appears that this particular owner has been targeted or somebody has been keeping an eye on him, due to the fact that these cars are so unique, easily identifiable and so high-end," Chief Inspector Scott Small said.

Police said they are searching for the suspects and the 2006 Bentley Continental Flying Spur.

The owner, who told officers he believes the thieves used a second-floor window to break into his home, put the total value of the two cars are more than $200,000.
