SOUTH FULTON COUNTY, Ga. - Thieves used drills and saws to cut through brick and concrete to get into a liquor distributor warehouse off Martin Luther King Jr. Drive in south Fulton County.
Channel 2’s Amy Napier Viteri obtained pictures showing the two holes in the brick and concrete building where thieves got away with 400 cases of liquor.
The burglary happened Saturday night into early Sunday morning. Photos show several cases of Hennessey outside the building.
“It would appear that they were in there for quite some time,” said Fulton County police Detective Melissa Parker.
said the spot where thieves got in is on the back side of the building – not visible from the main road. The total amount stolen is over $200,000.
“It would have taken a large vehicle and multiple suspects to move that amount,” she said.
said surveillance cameras from inside the building show at least three people, possibly more. Some of them made an effort to hide their identity.
“Some of them did wear masks or hoods. However, there is surveillance video footage, so we are going over that footage,” Parker said.
The group took several other types of liquor and investigators
said they're following several leads on what's being done with it.
“We’re hoping that anytime someone sees an individual selling alcohol on the corner not a legitimate business that they would call the police,” she said.
