Detectives are currently looking for four suspects wanted in connection with a series of auto burglaries which occurred in the area of 3900 Blackford Court, near Pennwood Avenue and Valley View Boulevard, on May 27. It is believed that the men arrived in a silver Honda Accord and parked in a vacant garage. Two suspects exited the vehicle while the other two remained seated.

There were several people in the store when the take-over style robbery occurred. Clerks were ordered to produce several cellular telephones that the suspects were able to get away with. No one was injured during the robbery and the suspects fled in an unknown light colored mid-sized sedan.
