Heist Movie-style Break-In at Columbia Video Game Store
That, and a sampling of other crime in Columbia.
It sounds like something out of "The Italian Job." Or "The Bank Job." Or any other movie with Jason Statham in it.
A break-in at a video game store – and a hole cut through the wall to get in there.
The break-in happened at about 3:15 a.m. Wednesday at the GameStop on the 6900 block of Dobbin Center Way, according to the Howard County Police Department.
Police say a rear door at an adjacent store, Fitness Resource, was pried open. From there, a hole was cut into the wall to GameStop. Items were taken from the storage room – a list of what was taken is still being compiled.
The suspects did not go into the main part of the video game store, police said.
