WINDSOR, Va. (WAVY) - An attempted burglary in Windsor was caught on camera, but no arrest was made.
The would-be thieves walked away empty handed, but the owner of the popular Cabintowne Country Store contacted WAVY.com because he wants them behind bars.
Things all started to become clear Friday morning when Adam Cone came to work and noticed the shed had been broken into.
"I pulled up the camera of these guys breaking into the shed," said Cone. "I started checking others and saw that they actually attempted to break in the main store."
The men tried several times to get into the main store with bolt cutters, but each attempt was unsuccessful.
"On the video clip they actually sat there for a minute and determined there was really no point," Cone said. "They looked pretty upset when they were walking back across the parking lot empty handed."
Cone said no one has ever broken into his store before, but he takes extra security precautions just in case. He's glad the men were unsuccessful this time, but he doesn't want them getting any more ideas in their heads.
Cone has filed a report with authorities. He says he was informed that police took three individuals into custody Thursday night for something unrelated, but not far away. Detectives have not connected the men to the attempted break-in at the Cabintowne Country Store yet.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Windsor Police Department.
