MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Around 40 to 50 cars were reportedly broken into overnight at the Amazon facility in the Raleigh-Frayser area.
It happened on the 4000 block of New Allen Road around 2:30 a.m. on Wednesday.
Employees who had their cars broken into say there is on-site security but it appears they fell short overnight.
“The security guards aren’t patrolling the parking lot. They’re not doing nothing,” one employee said.
Memphis Police have not said what was stolen or exactly how many vehicles were targeted.
This is not the first time car break-ins have happened at the facility.
Employees say they are fed up with their cars not being safe while they are trying to earn an honest living. Some believe the recent break-ins could be an inside job.
“I’ve been here a month and almost every week there’s been a break into a car or a car stolen off the lot,” an employee said.
According to the Memphis crime tracker, there have been sixteen incidents involving theft and embezzlement in that area this year.
So far, Memphis Police have not released any information on a suspect.
We reached out to Amazon regarding employee concerns, but we have not heard back.
