Police seek burglars in string of Raleigh electronics thefts

Posted June 9, 2011

— Police on Thursday asked for the public's help to identify and arrest several thieves responsible for a string of burglaries targeting electronic items.

Between May 15 and Wednesday, the following businesses were robbed:

  • Sound Station & Security, at 7105 Glenwood Ave.
  • Computer Phone and Games Repair, at 3909 Western Blvd.
  • Rent-A-Center, at 3901 Capital Blvd.
  • Audio Express, at 2817 Capital Blvd.
  • Aarons, at 2709 Noblin Road
  • Rent-A-Center, at 4550 Capital Blvd.

Stereo components, flat-screen televisions, videogame consoles and laptop computers were stolen in the break-ins, police said.

The burglars have worn masks to hide their appearances, but police said they hope people recognize the clothing worn during the break-ins.

Stolen vehicles were used to commit the crimes, including some cases in which they smashed the vehicle into the business to gain entry, police said.

Anyone with information about the burglaries is asked to call Raleigh Crime Stoppers at 919-834-HELP.
