Thieves cut hole in roof, go on theft spree at Target

By Owen Weldon     Dec 23, 2016 in Crime
Atlanta - Thieves in Atlanta went on an electronics theft spree after they gained entry into a Target store. They managed to get in by cutting a hole in the roof.
Surveillance footage capture two people cutting a hole in the store's roof before they took off with electronics and money. The incident occurred on Tuesday morning and now authorities in Barrow County are searching for the suspects.
Authorities said the thieves walked around Target for a bit, after they got inside the store. Afterwards, they started their stealing spree.
The video shows the thieves breaking into an ATM and swiping a number of electronics, including a drone backpack and 4 Galaxy tablets. After the thieves got what they wanted, they left the same way they entered.
A manager at the store called in the burglary around 3:30 a.m., but the pair of thieves were already gone.
On Tuesday, crews were at Target fixing the hole in the roof. It's also believed that the thieves are responsible for a series of other heists at Target stores in Tennessee, West Virginia and Macon.
Police said that a sledgehammer and a yellow crow bar is what's being used on the ATMs. They said this was common in the burglaries.
In the Macon heist, a chainsaw was used to cut through the roof. It's not known if the burglars used a chainsaw in this recent theft.
