Men cut hole into store roofs in in GA, TN, WV privateofficer.com



Barrow County GA. Dec 22 2016
Police are investigating a burglary into a local Target store where burglars bypassed the alarm system by cutting a hole into the roof of the store.
Barrow County authorities responded after employees coming into work spotted a hole in the roof .
Capt. Ryan Sears of the Barrow County Sheriff’s Office said two thieves took four Galaxy tablets, a drone backpack and an undisclosed amount of cash during the heist.
Video surveillance footage recorded in the Target about 1:50 a.m. shows two people leaving the restrooms and heading toward an ATM. After violently whacking the machine, they grabbed a large haul of cash.
The sheriff’s department said that they don’t have much of descriptions because the individuals covered their faces but Sears said the way they entered the store provided a clue.
 “Our investigators do know both individuals need to be at least 6 foot tall in order to get through in the roof where they entered and that the suspects left the store through the same hole.
They are also believed to have been involved in similar recent burglaries in Macon Georgia, which occurred last week, and in West Virginia and Tennessee.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers Atlanta at 404-577-8477, text information to 274637 or visit crimestoppersatlanta.org. Tipsters can also remain anonymous and be eligible for rewards of up to $2,000.
