MEMPHIS, Tenn.– Police are looking for a group of people who they say attempted to break into a Parkway Village liquor store Monday.
Police say two black Infiniti sedans pulled up to a liquor store in the 2700 block of Getwell Road around 1:30 a.m. A man got out of one of the vehicles, took a sledgehammer out of the truck, and attempted to break the front door glass while the other suspects remained in the vehicles.
Investigators describe the suspects as three to six males were dark clothes and masks. They say the suspects have burglarized multiple businesses in the last several days.
For months, we’ve reported on liquor store burglaries across the city of Memphis. Thousands of dollars in alcohol have been stolen from more than 50 store owners.
In many of the cases, the crimes have been committed by groups of men wearing masks, gloves, and hoodies.
A spokesman for Crimestoppers says they’ve received numerous anonymous tips and many of which have led to felony arrests. However, the problem persists.
Police describe one of the suspect vehicles as a stolen 2013 black Infiniti G37 bearing TN tag 9X7-6R8 with a broken sunroof and a Texas Longhorn emblem on the left side of the trunk lid. The other vehicle has temporary tag number Q8Y6KQ04.
