Best Buy Surveillance Video
In this surveillance video provided by the Snellville Police Department, you'll see a team of masked burglars plunge a large truck through the bay door making off with valuable electronics.
SNELLVILLE -- Police have recovered three stolen vehicles they believe were used in a smash-and-grab burglary at a Snellville Best Buy this week, including a truck that acted as a battering ram.
The 2002 Dodge Ram was found abandoned early Tuesday morning on Ronald Reagan Parkway near U.S. Highway 29. The truck bore damage where it'd been driven through a bay door at the rear of the 1709 Scenic Highway retailer, said Snellville police Capt. Harold Thomas.
Police have also recovered two Nissan Maximas they believe were at Best Buy when the burglary took place about 3 a.m. Monday. All three vehicles were stolen in Atlanta, Thomas said.
No suspects have been identified.
Surveillance video showed what appeared to be five people exit the truck and smash an interior window to gain access to the showroom. They loaded cameras, laptop computers and electronic notebooks into bags and fled in the truck in less than two minutes. They all wore masks and gloves, police said.
Police said the M.O. for the burglary is unique in the city of Snellville.
