Burglars struggle with grocery store safe

- A break-in and burglary turned into a comedy of errors in Newton County.

Surveillance video shows two thieves using yellow crowbars to get inside a Marathon gas station on Crowell Road on Friday, Aug. 10.

The two went straight for the safe, but struggled to get it inside a car.

And the difficulties don't end there.

It turns out loading a heavy safe into the back seat of a Charger is equally challenging.

Police described the car as an older-model black Dodge Charger SRT with aftermarket clear taillights and a driveout tag.

If you have any information about the crime, please call the Newton County Sheriff's Office.
