Tens of thousands of dollars worth of goods were stolen from Ben Franklin Crafts & Frames in Redmond last week, in the early morning hours of June 17.
Some of the items taken include one laptop, two iPads, gold and silver beads, batteries, two trash bins, 150 cloth bandanas and three latex gloves.
The break-in happened just after 5 a.m. Suspects forced entry into the business through a backdoor, said Andrea Wolf-Buck, Redmond Police Department spokesperson.
The scene was processed for prints and other evidence, but those results have not been returned yet. There was no surveillance footage from the crime scene and no burglar alarm.
Nearby, earlier that morning, someone broke into Pharmaca, a drugstore in the same complex as Ben Franklin. An alarm was triggered at 1:01 a.m. but no one was onsite when officers arrived minutes later.
And although there is video footage that captured the subjects inside the store, it’s not useful for police, Wolf-Buck said. It was clear that the subjects had their hoods up and were wearing masks. It was hard to see many identifying features.
No property was taken from the supplement store. However, suspects presumably attempted to access a safe. When their attempts failed, they fled.
Wolf-Buck said detectives continue to work on the investigation and hope more identifying details will emerge once results return from the evidence.
