Police look for 15 thieves after shoe store smash and grab

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA -

Police in Atlanta say they are on the hunt for over a dozen thieves after they allegedly broke into a Foot Locker store early on Monday morning.

Investigators say the 15 thieves who smashed through the windows of a southwest Atlanta Foot Locker left a pile of debris. Police say the burglars ran into the shoe store on Metropolitan Parkway after crashing a stolen vehicle through the front of the business around 3 a.m.

"They rammed the car all the way through the window. Like, wow," said Brayfus Renfroe, a barber who works next door to the Foot Locker store.

He says because of break-ins like the one at the Foot Locker, his business is moving next week to a safer location.

Customers who came to shop on Monday were told they would have to wait. A massive clean-up remained to be done to windows, the brick wall of the structure and the framing.

A customer of the business, Bernice Sellers, says the break-in makes her sad.

"It made me really upset. To know you work real hard for your businesses and help customers and then you wake up in the morning and see something messed up," said Sellers.

The owner says the burglars stole shoes and clothing before making their getaway, and it's the second time one of his stores has been hit by thieves.

The case remains under investigation.

    EXCLUSIVE -- LL Cool J grew and evolved from a hip hop artist out of Hollis, Queens, to a Hollywood TV and movie star. But he always stayed true to hip hop culture. We'd see him backstage at concerts just hanging out with us, so when I heard he was back in New York for the summer I had to find out why. I tracked him down to a Midtown Manhattan recording studio for this exclusive interview.
