CARTER COUNTY, TN (WJHL) -

A small business owner in Carter County may have to close his doors after recently being targeted by a burglar.

The crime happened at Bo's Garage on Okolona Road.

The owner of the business discovered he'd been burglarized on the morning of Monday, July 8th.

"There was a security system to the building," said Capt. Mike Little, Carter County Sheriff's Office. "The suspect cut the phone line to the building and actually gained access through the roof where they removed an alarm speaker.  So I believe they had some sort of an inside knowledge of how to gain access."

Using his victims' tools, the burglar pried open a large safe and stole $15,000 and firearms.

Nothing else was taken.

"A tremendous amount of other property was in the business at the time that would have been very attractive, but they chose not to take anything else," said Little.  "They took only the money.  That leads us to believe it was someone with inside knowledge."

Capt. Little said detectives did collect fingerprints that may have been left behind by the suspect, but he said this crime left a more lasting mark.

"He's definitely an employer in the community, and to loose that kind of money as a small business owner is devastating to the point that it definitely has an impact and the possibility of forcing him out of business."

If you have a tip, call the Carter County Sheriff's Office at 423-542-2350 or 423-542-1845.
