CUMMING, Ga. — Two people, wearing facemasks and hooded sweatshirts and jackets, forced their way into a small business and made off with $81,000 of high-end drones late on Small Business Saturday, according to the Forsyth County Sheriff's Office.

Authorities said the two thieves used a pry bar to open the front door of Atlanta Hobby on Oak Industrial Lane in Cumming. They were inside for less than about four minutes, before leaving through the back door and driving away in a white Nissan van, the sheriff's office said.

The store's owner, Cliff Whitney, said the alarm company called him at about 11:45 p.m. to report the break-in. He was able to check his security cameras on his iPad and confirmed the thieves in the store. Police were called and Whitney made his way to the store.

Deputies arrived on the scene shortly before midnight Saturday night. 

Whitney says that the store's primary business is the drones, and they offer FAA certifications and commercial drones. 

"Some of the drones taken out of here were $35,000 plus," Whitney said.

The loss is hard to take, especially during the Christmas season.

"We work on really low margins," Whitney said. "It's a big [loss] for any business, but especially a small business."

The thieves also stole from the Toys for Tots box in the store. He said this is his store's first year working with Toys for Tots.

"That's pretty low," he said.

Right now, authorities are looking to track down the two thieves; they are looking for anyone with any information on their identities.

Whitney is hopeful that the thieves will be caught.
