JPD: Thieves may have been former employees | Crime
Jonesboro police say two crooks who broke into a business during the holiday weekend apparently knew their way around the place.
Sometime between Friday, August 31, and Tuesday, September 4, burglars pried open the doors at Razorrock Materials, 3501 W. Parker Rd., and stole more than $1,000 worth of tools and gasoline.
According to Officer Richard Guimond’s initial report, the suspects were caught on video tape entering the building. Once inside, he said the suspects “appeared to know the property and building very well.”
After 30 minutes of loading up a variety of tools and cleaning supplies, the thieves turned on the breaker to the gas pump outside and stole approximately 32 gallons of gas.
According to the police report, the suspects used some type of off-road vehicle to drive up to the back of the building and then drive off with the stolen goods.
At this time there are no suspects, although it’s believed the suspects were “prior employees” based on their knowledge of the building and its contents.
