Boardman police seek trio of camera crooks

Posted: Updated:
BOARDMAN TOWNSHIP, Ohio - Police will be reviewing surveillance video, hoping to find out who stole thousands of dollars worth of merchandise from a township camera shop.

Investigators say someone kicked in the back door of YM Camera at 755 Boardman Canfield road just before 6:00 a.m. Saturday. 

The owner of the store told the patrolman who responded to the call that it looked as if a great deal of merchandise had been taken from two shelves.   An inventory will have to be conducted to determine the loss, but the owner estimates that $50,000 worth of goods are missing.

Police say security tapes show three men who were wearing gloves and had their faces covered, filled garbage bags with items from the shelves.  The store owner told police that one of his employees reported that a man fitting the description of one of the men on the video, and speaking broken English, had been in the store to talk to him about a broken camera.

The store owner told police that he has received information from a group of nationwide camera shop owners that a group of criminals have been targeting camera stores and taking high end cameras and lenses.
