“On July 5, 2020 Officers were dispatched to 230 W Main St., Main Street Tattoo, for a reported burglary in progress. As officers arrived they saw damage to the back of the Auto Resources car dealership. The officers could hear a loud banging and made their way down the ally.
The officers located two men at the back door to Main Street tattoo. They watched as the suspects were trying to pry open the door to that business. Both suspects were arrested for the attempted burglary of Main Street Tattoo.
Officers were able to make contact with the owner of Auto Resources. The owner arrived and identified property stolen from his business. The suspects were also arrested for the burglary to Auto Resources.
It appeared that the suspects may have victimized other businesses in the area, however officers were not able to make contact with the owners.
