CUMMING, Ga. — Unknown perpetrators stole a pallet of car batteries July 15 worth $600, according to a Forsyth County Sheriff’s incident report.
An employee of Walmart, 5455 Atlanta Highway, told deputies the theft occurred after the store closed about 5 a.m.
The employee said the suspects cut and removed a padlock that secured the battery storage area. Then, they stole all batteries from one of the pallets and took off.
After reviewing video surveillance, deputies saw a dark Dodge pickup truck drive by the garden center.
The suspects pulled behind the business, turned off the truck lights and backed into the battery area. A few minutes later, the truck left. The car tag is unseen in the video.
