Commercial Burglary theft of Flat Scree TVs
August 23, 2018


The Rochester Police Department is seeking the public’s help with information concerning a Burglary that occurred between 4pm, Thursday, August 16th, and 10am, Friday, August 17th.  During that time period someone entered a warehouse in the area of the 1800 Block of North Broadway.  The warehouse is on the North side of the Rochester Recreation Center grounds.


During that time some unknown person took 18 larger flat screen TVs valued at over $15,000. When the televisions were taken they were likely on pallets and wrapped in black plastic.  This warehouse is visible from Broadway and the movement of the loaded pallets would likely have needed larger equipment. For this reason, this may have caught the attention of a passerby, particularly if this occurred overnight.


If you have any information related to this case please contact Crimestoppers. You can remain anonymous, and you may be eligible for reward.  When leaving information please refer to Case # 18-39556.
