Authorities in Corona are on the hunt for a group of at least a dozen masked thieves who conducted a bold heist at an electronics store. The targeted store, which has unfortunately faced multiple burglaries over the past two years, fell victim once again on April 17. Surveillance footage revealed the shocking scene as a car crashed through the storefront, followed by the masked intruders swiftly flooding the premises. Within minutes, they managed to snatch an estimated $70,000 worth of merchandise, including cameras, lighting equipment, and laptops.
The Corona Police Department swiftly recovered the stolen vehicle, used to crash into the building, the following day. In an interesting twist, authorities discovered a cell phone and someone’s ID inside the store, potentially providing crucial leads. However, despite these findings, no arrests have been made thus far.
In a concerning turn of events, officials are now investigating whether this burglary is connected to a similar incident that occurred in Burbank last week. The striking resemblance between the two cases has raised suspicions, prompting a thorough examination of possible links and organized criminal activity in the area.
The public’s cooperation is crucial in bringing the perpetrators to justice. Individuals with any information regarding the April burglary are urged to contact the Corona Police Department, assisting in the ongoing investigation. As the manhunt for these masked thieves intensifies, the residents of Corona remain vigilant, hopeful for a swift resolution to these unsettling crimes.
