Rooftop Burglars Sought By Police

SMITHFIELD – Police are looking for burglars who cut a hole in the roof of a Smithfield business to get inside. The incident was discovered Monday morning at American Eagle at 1025 Outlet Center Drive.

Smithfield Police said someone used a 16 foot extension ladder to make their way onto the roof of the building. They cut a hole in the roof and made entry through the ceiling.

Once inside American Eagle, the suspects broke through an interior wall to gain entry into an adjacent business, Lee’s Jewelry & Cell Phone.

Authorities don’t believe any items were stolen from the businesses but the intruders left behind a lot of damage.

Anyone with information about the Monday morning rooftop break-in is asked to contact Smithfield Police at 919-934-2121.
