MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – A Myrtle Beach business is asking for help finding a burglar who broke a window and was caught on their surveillance camera stealing several radios from their store early Monday morning.
"I think if you saw him and you knew who he was, you'd be able to recognize him," said Chelsea Gartner, the office manager at Custom Care, Inc. "If you do recognize him, just let us know. That would be nice."
Police responded to Custom Care, Inc., on 205 Broadway Street in Myrtle Beach at about 4:30 a.m. Monday, according to a police report. The officer noted that the window next to the front door was broken and a small rock laying on the ground amongst the broken glass. There was also a large crack in the glass door. An officer also noticed blood stains up and down the pane of the broken window.
"Glass everywhere, yea, the window isn't very pretty," Gartner said.
Employees at the store said five car radios were missing from a shelf inside the store totaling $2,000.
Surveillance video shows the burglary suspect enter the store, grab a stack of radios, and then exit. The suspect then comes back inside, grabs two more boxes, appears to try to open the cash register, then leaves.
"We are thankful that we did have the video, it was up and running, you could see most of him," Gartner said.
Gartner said the business plans to add even more security cameras and to also increase the number of sensors on the front of the store to set off the alarm.
"That way if it does happen, someone does break in again, then it goes off right away instead of waiting a little bit," Gartner said.
Anyone with information about the burglary or the suspect should contact Myrtle Beach Police. The man was wearing a red and black jacket in the surveillance footage.
