Atlanta police release video of Shade Store burglary

Atlanta police released a surveillance video Tuesday of three smash-and-grab burglars striking a window treatment store last week.

Authorities said the three suspects parked behind The Shade Store at 1200 Howell Mill Road early Friday and broke through a front window. They took five computers and damaged a computer monitor before fleeing in a green Dodge Magnum, possibly a 2005. Police responded to the burglary call around 4:45 a.m.

It was the second time the store had been burglarized this month. Several men stole laptops and electronics after throwing a brick through a window on Aug. 1. They left the scene in a black Honda Accord and a white Jeep Cherokee, police said.

Anyone with information on either crime should call the Crime Stoppers Atlanta tip line at 404-577-8477, visit www.crimestoppersatlanta.org or text CSA and the tip to CRIMES (274637). Tipsters can remain anonymous and are eligible for the reward of up to $2,000 for the arrest and indictment of the suspects.
