Best Buy Burglary May Be Part of “Ninja” Ring
Police in Connecticut are looking into whether a recent break-in at a Best Buy in Norwalk may be connected to a series of similar robberies in several Northeastern states in recent months. According to the Stamford Advocate newspaper, the Best Buy theft took place last Sunday, and netted several GPS units, iPods, and digital cameras.
Police believe the robbery may be connected to others that took place in New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania. There are said to be five burglars, who wear “black ninja uniforms” during the heists.
