Alpharetta, GA – Alpharetta police reported that a stealthy and brazen burglary occurred at an Alpharetta liquor store on December 22nd, 2020. The costly burglary occurred at the Old Milton Beverage liquor store on Old Milton Parkway.

According to the police report, a glass window pane next to the front door had been pushed out. Security cameras in the store showed the burglar using tools to remove weather stripping around the glass pane. The burglar pushed the glass panel out of the way and then crawled in staying low to the floor as he entered the building. Then the suspect  crawled to each cash register, removing $430 in cash from each. The burglar also stole $2,000 for a cash box and then took another $500 from a coin box. Additionally, he stole cartons of cigarettes near the register. Then the burglar crawled to the manager’s office. The suspect  picked the lock to the office door and stole a whopping $14,367 in cash. After that, he crawled to the front of the store and loaded liquor bottles into a bag that he had with him. The burglar then stood up and ran to grab another box of cigarettes as he exited the building through the same window where he had entered.

The owner of the store said that $17,727 in cash and $3,032 worth of inventory was stolen from his store.

Unfortunately, police investigators have been unable to identify the perpetrator who was wearing a hoodie tightly drawn around his face so that only his eyes could be seen by the cameras. Consequently, this bold, brazen burglar is still at large.
