Burglars continue to hit electronics store

Bibb County deputies are investigating two burglaries at Fusion Point, 4794 Mercer University Drive, that have occurred in the past 10 days.

Deputies were dispatched to the store at about 3:15 a.m. Tuesday in reference to an alarm. When they got there, deputies found broken glass next to the front door and the owner said a flat-screen TV, valued at $1,699, had been taken from a front wall display, according to a sheriff’s office report.

A security video showed two men using a crowbar to break the store’s glass window and then taking the TV off the wall. The men were dressed in all black with hoods over their faces and gloves on their hands, according to the report.

Deputies responded to another alarm at the business at about 3:20 a.m. July 7. The security video showed three men using a crowbar to break the glass window and the men taking several flat-screen TVs, valued at $12,396, from the front wall display, according to a sheriff’s office report.

The business also was burglarized sometime between 7 p.m. Jan. 27 and 7:30 a.m. Jan. 28, according to the sheriff’s office.

When the owner arrived to open for business, he found the front door lock broken and the door slightly open. The power meters and phone lines had been ripped out of the business. Four TVs, valued at $6,500, were taken, according to a sheriff’s office report.

Sheriff’s office spokesman Sean DeFoe said the burglaries appear to be related.

Anyone with information is asked to call the sheriff’s office at 746-9441 or Macon Regional CrimeStoppers at (877) 68-CRIME.
