UPDATE: 4 suspects identified in Glendale Pawn Shop burglary
FORREST COUNTY, MS (WDAM) - The Forrest County Sheriff's Department has identified four suspects wanted in connection to a burglary at the Glendale Pawn Shop.
According to Forrest County Investigator Nick Calico, authorities were searching for four black males that broke into the pawn shop around 2 a.m. Monday.
The four have been identified as juveniles, and their names are not being released. Authorities have issued "pick-up" warrants for them according to Calico, and the department is in the process of apprehending them at this time.
One of the suspects drove a 2005 Hyundai Santa Fe into the front doors of the building, breaking the doors, allowing the other three suspects to enter the business.
Calico stated the vehicle used in the robbery was recovered at the scene, due to the fact that it was actually wedged inside the doors of the pawn shop. The vehicle was registered to someone in North Mississippi, but has not been registered as stolen.
The Glendale Pawn Shop is no stranger to being victimized by various crimes.
"This is the third time in about six months that people have broken into my shop," said Glendale Pawn Shop owner, Carl Cook.
However items have not been stolen on each burglary attempt.
"One time they took a various amount of handguns and long guns, the second time they couldn't get in as far, and this time here, they didn't get anything," said Cook.
Cook added that apparently this time, they didn't see what they wanted, and with the alarm sounding, they just took off.
"This is wrong, I'm a business man, I'm a man that is trying to make money to take care of my family just as well as they are, but this is wrong for them to try to break into somebody else's business and take something that doesn't belong to them," said Cook.
