Suffolk police are seeking the public’s help identifying suspects in a smash-and-grab burglary that occurred early Monday morning.

About 2:15 a.m., a late-model, red Ford Explorer with a luggage rack and silver rims sped into the Suffolk Plaza Shopping Center parking lot, reversed and smashed through the front door of Precision Pawn, located at 892 N. Main St.

A man entered the store and removed several items. He was described in a press release as a light-skinned male, about 6 feet tall, with medium build. He was dressed in jeans, a dark, short-sleeved T-shirt and a dark-colored cap. He wore what appeared to be a gray shirt with lettering tied around the lower portion of his face.
