PHENIX CITY, AL (WTVM) –The Phenix City Police Department and Piggly Wiggly JTM Corporation are trying to identify six people that may be connected to the burglary of multiple stores in East Alabama this year.
In two separate posts to social media, surveillance video shows six masked, armed men entering the Piggly Wiggly store no. 411, located on Stadium Drive in Phenix City on Oct. 6.
The JTM Corporation, the company that owns the stores and several others across the Chattahoochee Valley, says the same type of burglary occurred at the Piggly Wiggly location on 280 Bypass in Phenix City in January; two other stores in Troy, AL and Tuskegee, AL were also victims to similar crimes in January and April 2015, respectively.
A portion of the message from Piggly Wiggly JTM's Facebook post says:
You'll see six different checkout camera videos, and six persons of interest, who we've nicknamed as we've dissected their operation.
1 - Tupac (wearing Tupac shirt)

3 - Luigi (wearing big hat, has mustache)
4 - Hans (big male in sweatshirt and sweatpants, blue hat)
5 - Julio (wearing Julio Jones jersey, Falcons hat)
