MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Memphis Police are searching for three people they say are responsible for several robberies at different businesses dating back to February.

Memphis Police said the suspects are part of a crew responsible for over a dozen business burglaries. Police said they were able to link the crimes because the suspects always used yellow crowbars.

According to Memphis Police, on Saturday, April 23, 2021 at around 4:40 a.m., officers responded to an alarm call at the Magic Wings and Things located in the 500 block of E. Holmes Road. Officers made it to the scene and noticed the doors pried open. Surveillance video showed three unknown suspects wearing all black clothing breaking into the business using crowbars.

 “It was kind of heartbreaking. This family, we’re from this area,” said Ashley Montgomery. “And most of our customers are from this area as well.”

The suspects were able to take cash from one of the registers.

At Magic Wings and Things, they plan to stay strong and continue to move forward.

“We’re only going higher at this point, that’s all we can do,” she said. “Stay positive, stay motivated.”

Police say no arrests have been made at this point, and this is an ongoing investigation. If you know anything, call Crime Stoppers at (901) 528-CASH.
