Thieves take six hours to vandalize business

Posted: Updated:
BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

The owner of Harris Enterprises along Greenwell Springs Road says thieves hit his business and took their time destroying all that he and wife have worked to build.

Harris sells pre-owned cars and was disgusted as he watched surveillance video of the thieves going through his business.

The crime happened the Tuesday before Thanksgiving and Harris says Baton Rouge Police detectives have a copy of the surveillance video and fingerprints.

The video shows the thieves steal a total of four cars over roughly a six hour period.

The thieves broke into the business through the front window and once inside tore through the shop to find the keys to the cars.

The owner of the business says the thieves look like young teenagers.

"Where are the parents? Supervising themselves I guess," Harris said.  "From seven at night to four in the morning, we have serious problems."

Harris says he thinks he recognizes a few of people on the tape as kids in the neighborhood.

If you have any information, you are urged to call CrimeStoppers 225-344-STOP.
