Three Masked Men Rob Store in Lee of $500,000 Worth of Merchandise
In a press release sent to ABC40 Tuesday night, Chief Ronald Glidden says they were first notified of the theft at 8:30 in the morning Saturday by the store manager.
When officers arrived they found that the suspects who broke into the business had disabled the store’s alarm system and broke off the lock to the front door forcing their way inside. According to Chief Glidden the robbery occurred between 4:30 a.m. and 6:00 a.m. on November 23.
“Store security cameras showed three men coming through the front area of the store and placing a large amount of leather handbags, purses, and wallets into numerous garbage bags. The cameras then show the men gathering an assortment of watches and placing them into several backpacks before leaving through the rear door,” explains Chief Glidden.
Police say the suspects wore gloves and ski masks at the time of the break-in. They also report that the robbery is similar to other incidents involving three masked men that have recently occurred in Maine, Connecticut, New York, and Maryland.
The Lee Police Department continues to investigate the theft of the Michael Korrs store and is following several leads by working with numerous other law enforcement agencies to gather additional evidence and information on these incidents.
