Burglars trash and rob Chandler tattoo shop, stole money raised for vets

Posted: Updated:

Caught on camera a couple of guys break into a tattoo shop in Chandler trashing the place and stealing money that was going to be donated to veterans.
To get inside, the two men smashed the glass front door with a rock. The surveillance video shows them running in, grabbing a computer and then running to another area the camera got a clear shot of one of them

"They were out of here in two minutes. They did a lot of damage and go a lot of stuff in the two minutes that they were here" said Stacey Neal.

Stacey Neal owns Precision Tattoo near Alma School Road and Chandler Boulevard his security company called him immediately after the break in Tuesday morning.

"I just want to catch them, they got lucky... I missed them by minutes" said Neal.

In that short time, the two men were able to get away with plenty of valuable items including cash meant for charity.

"I can't believe they took four of my guitars, they took charity money out of the drawer that we were going to donate to disabled American veterans fund" said Neal.

They also took some of the tattoo artists equipment. "This is their livelihood and they don't deserve to get their equipment stolen. We donate a lot to charities and the money was taken for that... It ain't right" said Neal.

While one of the men wore something over his face the other didn't and the workers are hoping someone recognizes him.
