Smash-and-grab burglars hit Discount Tire store

Some thieves did a lot of damage, but got away with nothing from a tire store in northwest Houston early Thursday.

The thieves left behind a lot of damage. The suspects crashed a truck into the garage doors of the Discount Tire at T.C. Jester and West 20th.


The burglars thought they’d cut the power to the alarm, but the backup alarm sounded, according to police.


That scared the burglars and they ran away empty-handed.

You have to be pretty dumb to think you are going to cut off the power of an alarm system. Just about every system out there has some form of a back-up power supply, and some even have cellular devices just in case some numbnut thinks he is going to cut the phone lines.
