Thieves sought for burglary of building supply rental store in Port Richmond

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- Police say some thieves decided to use their car as a battering ram to knock down a chain link fence to pull off a burglary.

It happened early Sunday in Philadelphia's Port Richmond neighborhood.

A surveillance video was taken outside a building supply rental store along the 3800 block of East Thompson Street.

Once the suspects got into the lot, they broke a showroom window, grabbed a chainsaw and cutting saw worth $1500 and drove off, police say.
