Storage Facility Burglaries
Reports in Smith and Henderson counties
Detectives are working multiple burglaries at four different storage facilities around the county, as well as seven storage buildings that have been targeted here in the city. Police say multiple locations have been targeted more than once, and detectives continue to look for leads in the case.
Police believe it may be more than one individual or more than one group involved. Detectives say the thieves are targeting storage centers without surveillance systems with no security on the premises.
The burglars are apparently cutting the locks off of the units and then stealing the items.
Authorities tell us that the big target at the storage units are electronics such as televisions and DVD players.
