Three burglaries in Jacksonville have lead to police searching for four people. This could lead to a few arrests for Florida burglary to a structure. Three ABC liquor stores in Jacksonville FL have been hit already in the last month. The burglarars stole mainly high-end, expensive alcohol. First Coast News reported:
“The latest was in the wee hours of Thursday morning on Roosevelt Boulevard. According to a Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office police report, the unknown suspects made their way into the Roosevelt Boulevard store by throwing concrete into the lower part of the glass door. Video surveillance showed that four suspects pushed a shopping cart behind the counter and put random liquor bottles in the cart. Then, they tried to exit the store with the cart, but were unable to get the cart out of the store, so they abandoned it, according to the report.”
The Roosevelt Boulevard store was not the only Jacksonville ABC liquor store that was burglarized. An ABC store on Cesery Boulevard was burglarized on April 13. On April 19, the San Jose Bouleard store was targeted. “Security cameras captured the burglaries in progress with three and sometimes four men wearing masks breaking the glass front door and making a dash for the counter. That’s where JSO Sergent Mike Shell says expensive spirits were grabbed and carted off.” There is video evidence from a surveillance camera. The people that committed the burglaries did cover their faces.
The Florida Times Union gave more information about a reward in these burglary cases. “A reward for information leading to arrests in break-ins at three ABC Fine Wines and Spirits stores in April has been increased from $6,000 to $11,000. On May 9, ABC offered a $5,000 reward. ABC has increased that to $10,000. On top of those, Crime Stoppers offered a $1,000 reward.”
