For the second time in less than two months, Cary Grove Computers in Cary was burglarized. This time, three men stole electronics valued at almost $8,000, police said.
The Cary Police Department responded around 5:24 a.m. Saturday to Cary Grove Computers, 115 East Main Street, for a burglar alarm that was activated.
Officers discovered there was forced entry to the business when they arrived, according to Cary Deputy Police Chief Scott Naydenoff.
Authorities reviewed video surveillance from the business and learned that three black males forced entry into the business, stole various electronics estimated at approximately $7,800, and then left the scene eastbound on Route 14.
The suspects fled the scene in a silver GMC Yukon with North Carolina registration FLW 2349. Naydenoff said that it is believed the vehicle was a rental car and that there was a fourth suspect waiting inside it during the burglary.
This is the second time in less than two months that Cary Grove Computers has been burglarized. In November, a male black driving a full-size white Ford van used a crowbar to break the window and gain entry to the business.
He stole five Apple iPad boxes that happened to be empty, police said. The man was never caught and it is unknown if he is one of the same suspects that struck in Saturday’s burglary.
Anyone with information about either incident is asked to contact the Cary Police Department at 847-639-2341 or Cary-Grove CrimeStoppers at 800-762-7876.
