Surveillance video shows burglars robbing Atlanta cemetery

Posted: Updated:

Surveillance video captured burglars robbing a southeast Atlanta cemetery.

According to an incident report from Atlanta police, officers were called to South View Cemetery at the 1900 block of Jonesboro Road Southeast on May 22 after an alarm sounded.

Upon arriving, police say they found a basement door pryed open where an air compressor and small tool box were stolen.

While an unidentified man could be seen committing the burglary on camera, the suspect remains at large.

This was the second time the cemetery was robbed within a week.  Another police report from May 15 indicated that three lawn mowers, worth $10,000 each, were stolen from the same cemetery, in addition to three vehicles being damaged.

Atlanta police ask that you contact them if you have any information about the burglaries.
