MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Vandals trashed a Memphis business, stealing computers, TVs, memorabilia. In addition, it through a wrench in a Super Bowl party that would have raised money for charity.
After destroying the office, a suspect was caught on surveillance camera with items he likely stole from Big League Movers, which is located inside of Minglewood Plaza in Midtown.
"We're having a Super Bowl party here tomorrow [Sunday] for some employees to raise some money for some charities, and some of the alcohol was stolen as well," said Jonathan Greer, vice president of the company.
According to police, the vandal set off a fire extinguisher throughout the offices. Several handwritten notes were also left on desks in the office.
Besides stealing a large TV, laptops, tablets, artwork, and even tearing Greer's college diploma in half, the business is also missing something they say is much more valuable.
"The pictures signed by Mike Conley that we got at the Grizz tip-off luncheon hits close to home," said Greer. "We think it's sort of an unnecessary crime, and he needs to answer for his actions for sure."
Since the robbery, the company's manager received calls from the crook, who is reportedly calling from pay phones and dropping some of the stolen items off at local banks.
According to the folks at Big League Movers, police are close to making an arrest.
