(KMOV) – Police are searching for four suspects after another smash-and-grab burglary in St. Louis early Thursday morning.

Witnesses told police they saw four suspects crash their truck into the front glass doors of MacHQ in the 7120 block of Manchester around 3:20 a.m.

The suspects then ran inside and came out with several boxes of computer equipment. Witnesses said the suspects put the boxes into the truck and fled the area.

A dark Chevy Impala with tinted windows was also spotted at the scene.

Police said minutes later the truck was spotted abandoned in the 2200 block of Richert Place. According to witnesses, the suspects exited the truck and got into the Impala and drove away.

An investigation revealed the Dodge Ram truck had been stolen.

The owner of MacHQ told News 4 it's the third time this month crooks have broken into and stolen from his store.

The incident marked at least the fourth smash-and-grab burglary in St. Louis over the past few days.

On Monday, a suspect broke a window at the Hazelwood National Rent-To-Own in the 7800 block of N. Lindbergh around 3:15 a.m. Police said the suspect then grabbed at least two flat-screen TVs and fled the scene.

Authorities said about 15 minutes later someone stole laptop computers from the Bel-Nor National Rent-To-Own store in the 8900 block of Natural Bridge.

Police said four suspects on Wednesday broke into the Rent-A-Center in the 4300 block of Natural Bridge and stole five televisions.

No suspects have been caught in any of the cases.
