Ex-employees accused of burglary
Newton County cabinet shop robbed Sunday morning

COVINGTON- Several items were stolen from Horizon Cabinets on City Pond Road in Covington by people who are believed to be ex-employees early Sunday morning.

The owner of the cabinet shop called the Covington Police Department after the night crew informed him they observed the former employees taking the items.

The victim told CPD that two ex-employees and their family members broke into a side door and took items from within the business and cut power cords to machinery in the shop.

According to reports the alleged suspects are two former employees who were former owners of the business when it was in Stone Mountain. Both reportedly quit this past week and had no rights to be on the property, according to Horizon Cabinets’ owner.

According to reports, once inside the suspects removed two Dell computers and monitor (valued at $1,600), a refrigerator ($1,500) hinge board machine ($1,800), five Dewalt drills ($400) three Dewalt sanders ($200) and a Dewalt chop saw ($300).
