O'Reilly Auto Parts stores hit for a 7th Burglary in Eastern Tennessee
Burglars disabled the alarm, cracked a safe, and got away with two days worth of cash deposits during a "professional" heist discovered Sunday morning at the Mount Carmel O'Reilly's Auto Parts store. Mount Carmel Police Department Assistant Chief George Copas said these burglars knew the layout of the store and knew how to disable the alarm system without being detected. "These weren't your average, everyday burglars," Copas said. "These guys were pros." Copas noted that this was the seventh identical O'Reilly's Auto Parts burglary over the past 10 weeks in East Tennessee. If the seven burglaries are connected, this was the farthest east they've hit, with previous O'Reilly's burglaries having taken place in Maryville, Knoxville, Lenoir City, Sevierville, Seymour and Morristown.
