Conyers Police and Crime Stoppers are offering up to a $5,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and indictment of burglars who have targeted Conyers businesses.
Within a week’s time, three Conyers businesses have been broken into overnight and merchandise stolen.
Just after 1 a.m. on Sept. 30, police believe four suspects entered the property of Mountain Motor Sports at 899 Iris Drive. The suspects were driving a white van which they used to load two all-terrain vehicles into and take them off the property.
Sound Pro Mobile Electronics, 1026 Iris Drive, Conyers, was burglarized after Mountain Motor Sports on Oct. 2.
Hibbett Sports on 1486 Dogwood Drive was robbed just after 2 a.m. on Monday. Police believe suspects smashed the glass door at the sports retail store and stole name brand athletic apparel and accessories. A white two-door vehicle, which could be a Dodge Challenger or Ford Mustang, was seen in the area before the burglary and parked near Hibbett’s Sports.
The burglars targeted these large stores within a short period of time. However, investigators do not believe the incidents to be related.
“Our main concern is to stop this from happening,” said Conyers Police Chief Gene Wilson. “We want to send the message that we will put heat on these criminals and keep them out of our city and protect our businesses.”
Any information on these cases can be submitted anonymously to the Crime Stoppers tip line at 404 577-TIPS (8477), online www.crimestoppersatlanta.org, or by texting CSA and the tip to CRIMES (274637). Persons do not have to give their name or any identifying information to be eligible for the reward of up to $5,000.
