Thieves Caught on Video Surveillance After Multiple Break-Ins at Same Detroit Auto Shop

The shop owner estimates more than $100,000 worth of equipment has been stolen in the five break-ins.

DETROIT — Ali Fawaz is fed up. His auto shop here has been broken into five times in the past three months, the most recent occurring on Sunday.

Fawaz’s video surveillance cameras captured images of the suspects grabbing TVs off the walls of Safeway Muffler Service Center. After an alarm frightened the suspects, they removed it from the wall and escaped with the TVs.

“I can’t take it anymore,” Fawaz said in a Fox 2 Detroit report, later adding that he feels like he’s being targeted.

Police believe the same suspects are responsible for multiple break-ins at the auto shop. They are looking for two black males in their 20s.

Fawaz estimates that previous break-ins have resulted in over $100,000 of tools and equipment being stolen. He thinks the same two males are responsible for each break-in at the shop.

“I started catching them on camera every time and this is how I know it’s the same people,” Fawaz said.
