The officer manager told Channel 2 the thieves burglarized the business and stole the keys. 

“There were keys everywhere,” Alisha Hunter said. “They used one of our cars as a battering ram to get the gate itself down.”

Anyone with information on the alleged thefts is asked to call Roswell police.
