Forsyth businesses entered, not robbed



FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. —Two businesses were broken into and had the alarm systems cut, but the suspects didn’t take anything, according to a Forsyth County Sheriff’s incident report.

On June 7, deputies were dispatched to the Sprint wireless store, 405 Peachtree Parkway, because the alarm company called the store owner.

When deputies arrived, the owner said the light fixture above the back door was broken. Deputies said there was no sign of forced entry in the back or the front of the store.

When they went inside, deputies saw a hole cut through the wall by the office and the alarm system had been ripped out.

The front door of the neighboring store, All American Specialties, was forced open, deputies said. The suspects had cut a hole in the bathroom of the All American Specialties store and were then able to get inside the Sprint store.

Both owners of the stores said no items seemed to be missing. Several laptops, cellphones and cash registers were left untouched.
