INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (May 5,2015) -- Two Indianapolis businesses are trying to find out who threw a boulder through their windows.

"He threw the rock and then he walked through," said Kathleen Lamb, vice president of operations at Storage of America.

Surveillance cameras caught a tan SUV pulling up to the storage facility located on the 4200 block of West 62nd Street. The video then shows the man get out of his vehicle, pick up a massive rock and throw it through the front door.

"The glass was everywhere. It was a big mess," said Lamb.

The front door is now boarded up and the boulder is back where it belongs.

"He went right to our cash drawer. He knew exactly where it was, so we feel like he was someone who was actually in our building before," said Lamb.

Last Sunday, Lamb met with police to comb through the damage and review the surveillance video.

"He was out of here really quickly," said Lamb.

Lamb says the burglar was only inside the lobby for a few minutes. The video shows him trying to hide his once he realizes cameras are rolling. The burglar didn't walk away with much, but he did cause thousands of dollars in damage.

"He only got away with $3.10," said Lamb.

Hours before the storage facility burglary, a burglar also targeted Bulldog Liquidators at Meridian Street and 22nd Street. Surveillance video shows the burglar pacing back and forth before he grabbed a nearby rock and threw it through a side window. Next, the man slips in through the jagged window and steals a TV.

"We still have the boulder inside. The police told us to keep it for evidence," said Bulldog Liquidators manager Micah Smith.

"To me it’s very concerning because obviously this isn't an isolated incident. This is somebody that’s calculated and thinking about doing this stuff," said Smith.

Police are still looking for the two men seen in the surveillance video. If you have any information, call police or Crime Stoppers at 262-TIPS.
