There is surveillance video, but that doesn't help shop owners. One business is out thousands of dollars after thieves broke through a locked gate.
When Marvin Cox arrived at S & S Home Improvement on Redmond Road, he found the lock had been cut, the gate was wide open and thousands of dollars worth of equipment was gone.
"This was a hard lick," he says.
Thieves made their way to the back of the building, stole a trailer, dragged it across the parking lot and cut a hole in the fence.
They then broke in next door.
The neighbors, S and J Construction have surveillance video that caught someone walking inside a shed and getting away with a couple of chainsaws and a generator.
Across the street at Jacksonville Auto Repair, the owner says thieves came in through a fence now held together with barbed wire and tried to break into his trailer.
They were unsuccessful, but did about $700 worth of damage.
Donnie Hall, owner of Superior Auto Repair says his business has been on Redmond for 14 years and about once every year thieves help themselves.
"They steal aluminum transfer cases, break into people's cars - rummage them," he says.
Meanwhile, barbed wire surrounds part of the building at S & S Home Improvement, but Marvin Cox says they've got to do more.
"We've talked to police about doing some extra surveillance around here and we are going to get our own security cameras," he says.
The surveillance video shows a white SUV the person was believed to be driving.
