ROSSVILLE, GA (WRCB) -

Several business owners started their Mondaymorning cleaning up the big mess left behind after a string of recent burglariesnear Chickamauga Ave in Rossville.

Papers were thrown all over, the furniture was rearranged, the back door kicked in and all the electronics - TV monitors and computers -  were ripped out of the wall at Fast Lane Auto Sales.

"It makes me think twice when I pull in my parking lot which Inever thought about before."

Five other local businesses were also burglarizedin the area. The owner of Creightons Flower shop said he's not offended the robbers didn't take his beautiful one of a kind arrangements, but he is upset they removed the cash register, the money inside it and all the laptop computers.
