Smash-and-grab burglars hit West End store

Atlanta police spokesman Otis Redmond said the Fashion Industry boutique on Oak Street near the Mall West End was burglarized about 4:30 a.m.

Officers at the scene said four suspects smashed the glass front door, then pried open a metal roll-down gate.

Redmond said the thieves took blue jeans and other clothing items.

The store, which is on the ground floor of the Sky Lofts condominiums, was also burglarized last September.
