Police searching for 2 suspects after failed burglary attempt

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

Jonesboro police were called out to Turtle Creek Pawn, 3610 East Highland Dr., for an attempted break-in Friday.

According to the incident report, police were searching the area when they saw two black men run from behind the building and jump the fence.

One suspect was wearing a white shirt and yellow ball cap and the other was wearing a dark colored shirt.

There were several crow bars and tools still in the building's back door from where the suspects were trying to pry it open.

The report stated that the suspects did not get inside the building, but caused significant damage to the back door.

The owner of the store said that a black man came in the store earlier in the day and was asking strange questions that made him believe he might possibly be involved.

There have been several other attempted burglaries in the area with the same type of description.

 If you have any information about these incidents, please call CrimeStoppers at 935-STOP.
