$500 reward offered in widespread burglary case

Posted

The Cordova Police Department is offering a $500 reward for information leading to the arrest of the individuals who went on a burglary spree in east Walker County over the weekend.

Cordova Police Chief Nick Smith said surveillance footage shows two suspects who broke into 11 Sumiton businesses early Saturday morning also forcibly entered Mojo’s Pizza in Cordova shortly after 2 a.m.

The same suspects attempted to break into Sheri’s One Stop around 2:40 a.m. but fled when a passer-by caught them in the act.

Smith said the suspects are also believed to be connected to burglaries that occurred at Subway and Precision Auto Care in Adamsville on Sept. 6.

No arrests have been made in the case.

Smith issued a public apology to the citizens of Cordova on Facebook Monday for the first break-in to occur at a Cordova business since 2013.

“The officers of the Cordova Police Department have been working literally nonstop on this case. While we haven’t shifted our focus from our day to day operations, extra hours have been devoted so we can see that justice is served to those responsible,” Smith posted on his personal page.

Tips may be sent to the police department through Facebook or by calling 483-7378.

All tips will remain anonymous.
