PENSACOLA, Fla. (WKRG) — According to Pensacola police, a “dancer” at Lookers in Pensacola, allegedly burglarized three storage units back in July, stealing a variety of items totaling $8,805, including several vintage dresses and solid gold R2-D2 memorabilia.
On July 11, Pensacola police officers were dispatched to 195 East Fairfield Drive, Life Storage, in reference to a burglary. George Klages, an employee with Life Storage said in the arrest report that he noticed three storage unit lockers appeared broken into. Lockers 1252, 1332 and 1338, all appeared to have their locks cut off and removed from the area with the exception of locker 1252. Klages said that all three locks were intact the day prior when they were checked.
On July 15, a PPD officer installed two cellular motion-activated cameras at the entrance of Life Storage in an attempt to capture images of the suspects returning to commit future burglaries.
