Plywood and rubble isn't exactly what you want shoppers to see on the busiest shopping weekend of the year. But, that's exactly what they saw at Al Wissam's in Dearborn. On Thanksgiving, thieves turned the store into a drive-through. Surveillance cameras captured them slamming into the store with a Jeep Grand Cherokee.

A large group of burglars can be seen rushing inside. They snatched as many pricey jackets as they could and took them to a dark colored van that was waiting nearby. The whole thing happened in less than one minute. Dearborn police say the Jeep was stolen. The suspects clearly knew what they were doing because the jackets they took were some of the most expensive ones in the store. Police are hoping these thieves told someone about their dirty deed. Anyone with information is asked to contact Dearborn Police.
