Public's help sought after Bobby Jones business break-in

Investigators are searching for two thieves who used bolt cutters to steal a welding machine from the Tractor Supply store on Bobby Jones Expressway last week.

In surveillance video of the incident, one of the men can be seen retrieving the bolt cutters from one part of the store then using them to cut through the chain that secured the welder. One of the men then puts the welder in his cart and pushed the cart out of the building's side door, according to Richmond County Sheriff's Investigator Aaron Hannsz.

The two thieves walk to the front register to buy bottled water then left the store - retrieving the welder from the side of the building before they drove away.

Anyone with information on the men can call the sheriff's office at (706) 821-1080.
