Police: 70 storage units broken into in St. Pete

- Police in St. Petersburg are investigating a major break-in at a storage facility that happened early Sunday morning.

Officers say someone broke into approximately 70 storage units at LifeStorage, which is located at 1159 94th Ave. N. 

Each of the storage units is leased to a different victim.  Police say each unit broken into was located in an outdoor hallway. At this time, it is unknown what property was stolen from any of the units.  

Steve Regula discovered the burglary and called police. Regula told FOX 13 he went to get a cook book from his unit and found it, dozens of others, wide open.

"You could see the way they broke in these people. You could see them jimmy it and you see the lines," said Regula.

LifeStorage advertises excellent security on its website and highlights surveillance cameras, lighting and passcode access.


Officers say video surveillance is still being obtained and being reviewed, and so far they have not released information about any suspects.
