BRIEF: Police investigate series of office building burglaries

Jun 15, 2012 (Montgomery Advertiser - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) -- Police are looking for suspects in a series of office building burglaries that involved the theft of several dozen laptop computers.

There have been four office building burglaries carried out in similar ways dating back to 2006, Detective B.E. Thornell said.

In each of the burglaries, the perpetrators entered the building when it was close to closing and then hid and waited until everyone left, Thornell said.

Three of the burglaries have occurred this year, and a total of 47 laptops have been stolen, he said.

Police have released still photos from video surveillance and a composite drawing of one of the suspects.

Anyone with information about the burglaries is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 215-STOP, Secret Witness at 262-4000 or the Montgomery Police Department's Criminal Investigation Division at 625-2831.
