INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (March 19, 2016) – The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department says they are looking for the suspects who rammed a vehicle into the front doors of a clothing store and stole items from inside.
An anonymous tip prompted police to investigate the burglary at Hang Time clothing store in the 5600 block of Georgetown Road around 4:00 a.m. March 19.
The owners of store estimate the structural damages and loss of merchandise to be several thousand dollars. They also believe the burglars were after an expensive pair of 'Robin' jeans. Some pairs can cost as much as $600. However, the thieves took anything they could get their hands on.
Customers were in disbelief after watching the surveillance video.
" I don’t condone that at all. I saw that video and thought to myself this is a clear lack of parenting," said Brian Piper.
"I’m in the sneaker game myself and I'm into clothes and everything young people are into as well .I think it's crazy young people go to these lengths just to get what they want," said Conner Ice.
Surveillance video confirmed that a newer white Dodge Durango and a white sedan, possibly a Nissan Maxima, were involved. The white sedan was used to ram the business after unknown suspects rolled away the concrete planters in front of the business. After the vehicle rammed the front of the business, 10-12 suspects spilled in and began taking items.
Mutaser Ramadan, the business owner, responded to the scene and said that they would need to take inventory to discover exactly what was taken.
