Across the metro Atlanta, burglary rings have targeted storage spaces for valuable items; no word if the thieves are tied to other crimes. Police said they're reviewing surveillance footage of two possible male suspects. 

Police advise users of storage facilities to always maintain a list of items and serial numbers, check a facility for security and surveillance, and keep valuable items like guns in a safe.
