The Athens-Clarke County Police Department is hoping the public can help identify two males suspected of breaking into multiple commercial businesses.
From the ACCPD:
ACCPD detectives are requesting the public’s assistance in identifying two male suspects responsible for committing a series of commercial burglaries in the area. Detectives believe the suspects use a pry bar on a rear door to gain access to the business. The suspects steal cash and other items. The burglaries have occurred in strip malls, small businesses, auto shops, and restaurants during the overnight hours.
Detectives ask that anyone with information about the burglaries or the identity of the suspects to contact Det. Paul Davidson – (762) 400-7099 or Paul.Davidson@accgov.com. Additionally, a Crime Stopper's reward of up to $1,000 is being offered for information leading to the identity of the suspects. Call the Crime Stoppers Tip line at 706-705-4775.
ACCPD detectives advise local businesses to ensure their alarm or surveillance system is working properly, keep exterior lights on during nighttime hours, secure all windows and doors, and remove cash from the premises.
