Thieves break into Chandler tattoo parlor, steal donations for disabled veterans

CHANDLER, AZ - A couple of thieves broke into a tattoo shop in Chandler and stole more than equipment.

The duo got away with a donation jar set up for disabled veterans.

The owner of Precision Tattoo on Tuesday morning found shattered glass outside his business near Ray Road and Alma School Road.

Surveillance video caught it all on tape.

In just under two minutes, you can see the thieves steal a computer and tattoo tools.

Employees also say they stole several guitars-- along with a donation jar with $800 intended for Disabled American Veterans.

"I doubt that they knew that it was for them, but it just sucks because we try to do everything we can for a lot of different charities," said store owner Stacy Neal, owner.

Customer and Iraq veteran Dan Sullivan couldn't believe it.

"With that amount of money they had, think about how many families that could've helped, just a little bit," he said.

 If you have any information, you are asked to call the Chandler Police Department.
