Smash and Grab

By  | 

A beach business owner is offering a reward to anyone who can help capture the people responsible for a series of smash and grab burglaries at beach novelty gift shops.

The latest happened last night at the Condom Knowledge store on Thomas Drive.

The thieves threw a brick threw the glass front door and quickly grabbed whatever they could get, mostly jewelry.

The store's surveillance cameras show at least one person wearing a monster mask along with a dark cap with a white logo.

K-9 units tracked the burglars behind a nearby Tom Thumb convenience store where they believe a car was waiting.

Investigators believe the same people are responsible for at least three other burglaries, including one at Alice’s White Rabbit and an earlier break-in at this same Condom Knowledge store.

Condom knowledge's owner is offering a thousand-dollar reward for information leading to an arrest. If you saw a car parked there or pull out from behind the store around 12:15 to 12:30 a.m. Thursday morning, call the Bay County Sheriff's Office at 747-4700.
