UPDATE: Multiple keys, 2 cars stolen from Buckhead hotel valet

Valet workers at the Marriott Hotel along Lenox Road in Buckhead are vigilant after the group of thieves hit early Saturday morning.

Atlanta police are trying to track down a group of people who broke into a valet key box at a Buckhead hotel and made off with multiple sets of keys and two cars.

Officers were sent to the Atlanta Marriott Buckhead Hotel on Lenox Road Saturday after someone reported a vehicle was stolen. Police told Channel 2 Action News a group of people pulled up to the hotel in a black Jeep Cherokee about 4:30 a.m. They broke into the key box and stole at least eight sets of keys. 
The group then headed into the parking garage and stole a Ford Expedition and a Chrysler 300, according to police. The valet service shares a parking garage with a car rental agency, the news station reported, and several rental cars were targeted as well.

The owner of the Ford was able to use tracking equipment to locate the SUV at a southwest Atlanta apartment complex. It was found with no damage and was returned to its owner, police said.

The Jeep was also recovered, according to Channel 2.
