SUBJECT: Police Request Public Input in Identifying Smart Cuts Burglars
DATE: June 1, 2017
CASE #: 17-012659
On Sunday, May 28, 2017 Kingsport Police Patrol Officers were summoned to Smart Cuts, located at 2400 West Stone Drive in Kingsport, in reference to an overnight burglary to the business that had just been discovered. Employees arrived to find the rear door of the business standing ajar and damage to the knob. A desk inside the business was found to be ransacked, and nearly $1,000 in cash prepared for deposit was reportedly stolen.

A review of surveillance video footage netted documentary evidence of two suspects in the act of committing the burglary at roughly 4:30 AM that same morning. They both appear to be young white male adults. Photos taken from that footage have been included in this release. Two clips of the actual video have been made available for viewing on the K.P.D. YouTube channel via the links below:

Anyone who recognizes either or both suspects, or who may have any additional information which may help solve this case, is asked to contact Detectives in the K.P.D. Criminal Investigations Division at 423-229-9429 or call Kingsport Central Dispatch at 423-246-9111.

Alternatively, if an individual who is able to supply information related to this or any other case wishes not to be identified, tips can be submitted anonymously via online “Citizen Feedback” forms available at the following link:
