17 units at Gate 5 Storage burglarized Friday

Police say two burglars broke into 17 units at Gate 5 Storage late Friday, causing more than $600 in damage.

Manager Bever­ly Smith said she noticed some units had been tampered with before she arrived Saturday at the business at 2740 Tobac­co Road, according to a Richmond County sheriff’s report.

Police say the burglars cut the padlocks that secured the storage units. At least one security camera was damaged during the break-in.
