ABBEVILLE, GA (WALB) -

Investigators are turning to the public to help solve an Abbeville burglary that resulted in thousands of dollars of losses for a liquor store owner more than year ago.

The Abbeville Police chief said an unknown number of burglars smashed the window of Scooters Liquor on Broad Street with a cinder block in December 2012. He said the thieves stole roughly $6,000 in beer, liquor and other merchandise, and caused about $1,000 in damage.

"It's a case that's dear to me," said Chief John Hendley, Abbeville Police Department. "Ms. Peggy Lancaster, the victim, is the owner of Scooters Liquor store. A couple of months prior to the burglary she lost her husband, Mr. Reggie, a real nice fella."

Hendley said the suspects may have been driving a large truck or SUV.

There is no surveillance video of the burglary and no witnesses have come forward. Anyone with information that could help solve the case should contact the Abbeville Police Department.
