RAW VIDEO: Employee talks about smash-and-grab at Buckhead Smashburger

Smash-and-grab at Buckhead Smashburger, dry cleaners

Smash-and-grab burglars hit two businesses in the same Buckhead shopping center just before daybreak Tuesday.

The break-ins happened around 6:15 a.m. at the Buckhead Crossing shopping center in the 2600 block of Piedmont Road.

The glass doors were shattered at the Smashburger restaurant on one end of the strip center and at the Classic Touch Cleaners on the opposite end of the center.

While it wasn’t immediately clear what was taken from Smashburger, Classic Touch owner Sanjay Banit said cash was taken from the dry cleaners’ register.

“Nothing was left in the register, including the tray,” Banit told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “Everything was gone.”

Banit said his business, which has been there for 25 years, was burglarized “many, many years ago. We haven’t had a break-in in quite a few years.”

He said a rock was thrown through Classic Touch’s glass door.

“The whole front door was broken out,” Banit said. “No glass left in the door.”
