Burglars cut hole in pawnshop roof

Three burglars looted a Fredericksburg pawnshop early Saturday after cutting a hole in the roof and disabling the alarm system.

City police spokeswoman Natatia Bledsoe said the incident occurred about 3:25 a.m. at Fredericksburg Gold and Pawn at 447 Jefferson Davis Highway.

Bledsoe said parts of the theft were captured on a store surveillance camera. Police saw three people inside the store.

But the burglars had their entire bodies covered, including their faces. Police could not even tell if they were men or women.

The suspects took jewelry, iPods, GPS systems and other items before leaving through the roof.
