BECKLEY -

Beckley Police are on the lookout for suspects breaking into businesses in the busiest part of the city.

Detectives with Beckley Police said both Aaron's in Beckley Plaza Mall and Rent-A-Center at Beckley crossing were robbed of flat screen TV's on September 21 and September 22.

People in Beckley said they are continuously shocked hearing about crimes like these in the area.

"It really speaks to the boldness of the criminals to just pull up with all these cars and people around to smash a window and grab something and run with it," said resident Chris Pack.

The store manager of Aaron's said the suspects grabbed a rock from Lonestar restaurant and brought it the whole way across the parking lot to smash the window.  Police said the robbery at Aaron's happened late Friday night and the Rent-A-Center was hit Saturday night.

People in Beckley said the fact that these crimes are happening in such busy areas makes them worried about what's going on in the outskirts of town.

"With all these people and business and cars and traffic around you can only imagine what kind of stuff they would do somewhere secluded like a home or something," said Pack.

If you have any information on either of the break-ins, call Beckley police.
