Police Release Video of Break in, Burglary of Lufkin Target
Lufkin Police are reporting that at 2:01 a.m. today (1/02/20), officers were sent to an alarm call at Target. While the officers were enroute, Target security reported that two suspects had broken into the store and stolen electronics before leaving as passengers in a silver sedan on South Medford Drive.
Officers arrived minutes later to find a shattered front door. Inside the store, they found an empty, shattered Apple electronics display case.
The suspects fled the store with more than $5,000 worth of electronics including an iPhone, Apple TV sticks, iPads and numerous Apple accessories. On the way out, the suspects dropped a couple of small Apple accessories.
Store surveillance video shows the suspects run up from the back of the parking lot park, use a window-punch tool to shatter the front glass and then run into the store. While they are inside, the lookout/getaway driver pulls up to the front of the store in a silver sedan that appears to have a damaged driver side, rear fender and left tail light out. Two minutes and forty seconds later, the suspects run out of the store carrying a white trash bag of electronics.
The two suspects who entered the store appear to be black males, while the driver remains unknown.
Anyone with information on this crime is asked to call the Department at 936-633-0356 or Crime Stoppers at 936-639-TIPS if they wish to remain anonymous.
