Police: Burglary suspects crashed car through BBQ's windows

GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) - Gulfport police are searching for a 15-year-old who they say broke into two businesses over the weekend, and stole cash and clothing.

Three others have already been arrested and charged with commercial burglary. Those suspects are 18-year-old Michael Hacksworth of Biloxi, 24-year-old Toddrick Johnson of Gulfport, and a 16-year-old who hasn't been identified because he's a minor.

The suspects reportedly rammed a car through the front window of AnJac's restaurant early Sunday morning. The collision shattered glass, and bent the metal door frame.

David Vickers owns the AnJac's BBQ at 34 29th Street in Gulfport. He said cash was stolen. And his computer system was corrupted.

"You know you feel violated," Vickers said. "I hope it's not what's coming. With this economy the way it is, you just have to protect yourself a little better."

A police report said Hacksworth, Johnson and the 16-year-old were captured within minutes of the break in. In their get away truck, police said, was clothing reportedly stolen a few minutes earlier from a store called a Touch of Fashion. That shop is at 707 Watkins Avenue, less than two miles from AnJac's.
