MEMPHIS, Tenn.– A group of burglars broke into at least five Memphis businesses in one hour, and it’s all on camera.
Police say officers responded to multiple business burglaries between 1 a.m. and 2 a.m. Wednesday.
Three of the burglaries happened on Covington Pike at Beauty M&W Supply, Casa Perez, and Koco Loco.
Three men broke into the Beauty M & W Supply store at around 1 a.m. Video shows two men walking behind the counter while a third stands watch at the door.
Reports say the trio pried the front door open and stole thousands of dollars worth of merchandise and cash. The suspects got away, but they decided to make a few more stops.
MPD says Casa Perez Market was ransacked, and they say thieves only got away with $5.
The other two burglaries happened on Raleigh Lagrange at Lenny’s Sub Shop and Antojitos Carlota.
A surveillance video from one of the stores shows the suspects wearing all-black clothing. Police say the suspects may be driving a dark-colored van or SUV.
Bryam Reyes lives in the area and says it’s disappointing to see someone steal from his community.
“The people trying to grow, and you know somebody go into and stolen everything,” Reyes said. “It’s bad.”
This incident comes after a string of burglaries across the city. People living in the area say they don’t see things improving anytime soon.
“It seems like it’s getting worse,” Roosevelt Turner said.
