March 18, 2011 • Local News

Burglars made a wide sweep through Roswell early Thursday morning, hitting four separate establishments.

At 3:59 a.m., officers received an alarm call at Bullock’s Jewelry, located at 215 N. [auth] Main St., where suspects smashed the front display window and removed merchandise, valued at a little more than $500.

At 4:13 a.m., a second alarm call came through from Pro Sports Jersey Plus, 2102 S. Main St. where nothing was reported as being taken.

According to Roswell Police Department spokesman Travis Holley, officers at the scene noted similarities in method to gain entry at both businesses. At 4:48 a.m., an alarm was set off when windows were shattered at Sun Country Food Mart, 2200 S. Sunset Ave.

Officers noted a number of packages of Marlboro 100s and Bic lighters on the floor. Employees called to the store immediately after the event were unable to say if anything had been taken.

At 4:50 a.m., RPD received another alarm call from Church on the Move, 901 W. Brasher Road. Officers found a 2- foot-long piece of steel pipe on the ground and a 32–inch television that had been dropped in the parking lot.

Roswell Police Department is asking for help from the public. “We need to know if anyone noticed anything out of the ordinary at any one of the locations that could potentially be used as evidence,” Holley said.

Anyone having information about these crimes should contact Crime Stoppers 1-888-594-TIPS (8477). Callers can remain anonymous and could be eligible for a reward.
