Thieves loot Springfield store after ramming stolen vehicle through store window
Fairfax County police are on the hunt for a team of four robbers who robbed the Smoke Bazaar in Springfield early Sunday after crashing a stolen 2013 Hyundai Elantra through the glass storefront.
Surveillance footage shows four suspects taking approximately $200 worth of merchandise from a counter as well as shelves.
Police were on the scene at 12.40pm – less than five minutes after the break-in – but the smash-and-grab team had already fled in another stolen car, a black 2019 Hyundai Elantra.
Both cars were taken to Lorton, Va., and the getaway vehicle was reportedly stolen about an hour before the break-in. This vehicle was found unoccupied later on Sunday in the 9200 block of Wildwood Lane in Lorton.
The Fairfax County Police Department described the four suspects as between the ages of 15 and 20.
