Thieves smash SUV into store, target Timberlands

City Gear smash-and-grab

ATLANTA - In just fifteen minutes, thieves smashed a SUV into the front of an Atlanta store and wiped out their supply of Timberland boots.

Witnesses told police a light-colored Dodge SUV backed into the front of City Gear, a store inside the Kroger shopping center at Cleveland and Metropolitan. The store's alarm notified police of the break-in at 5:29 am.

Witnesses told police the SUV backed into the front of the store, breaking the glass and security gate. Three suspects entered the store and spent about 15 minutes inside.

The business owners are still taking a full report, but police say it looks like the suspects focused on the storeroom and the collection of Timberland brand boots inside.

Police confirmed there was surveillance video showing the SUV leaving the location and heading north on Metropolitan. Police are continuing to check other cameras in the area for the vehicle.
