According to TMZ, the thief (or thieves) smashed in the back door of the Albany, Georgia store and made off with handguns, flat screen TVs, antique coins, necklaces, rings, and even the cash register (which only had $110). All in all, about $4,000 worth of merchandise was taken from the shop.
About 25 police cars showed up to the crime scene, but no suspects were found or arrested. Police believe that the store’s power and phone lines were cut prior to the robbery, and that the backhoe used to break through the back door was pilfered from a job site nearby.
While news of the robbery is completely awful, we’re just glad no one in the Phillips family was around to get hurt in the process!
