A Greece computer repair shop says on Saturday three people came into the shop and stole thousands of dollars worth of electronics, but it was all right in front of its security cameras.
The company, Fix My PC, is on West Ridge Road in Greece.
Workers there say the people came in to the store Saturday afternoon and took turns distracting the employee at the front desk while the others took electronics from around the room.
Saturday night they are asking for your help in recognizing and tracking down anyone in the security video that captures the whole thing.
Fix My PC is a repair shop for computers, televisions and basically any kind of electronic device. The store's founder tells News10NBC the three people didn't seem suspicious at all while they were in the shop, but once the employees came into the show room, they immediately saw the empty shelves and checked their security cameras.
“As they each took turn asking questions, two of them took turns taking all the items off of those shelves over there,” said Vincent Testa, Fix My PC founder.
By the way, the security cameras are in plain sight. The cameras caught the group in the shop. One of the cameras shows one person talking the the employee and the front desk while the other picks up a tablet and then places it in his backpack.
The store's founder says the group took turns asking his employee questions. He says that was all a distraction.
“One was asking questions about a TV bulb that was for the TV. The other was asking questions about his laptop, and in the two minute period of time is when they took the items of the shelf over there. We just would like to get the items back more than anything else. So if anyone knows these people you could ask them to bring them back,” said Testa.
Fix My PC says the group stole $2,000 worth of electronics.
Greece Police are now investigating, so if you recognize any of the people in the video you are asked to call 911.
