Burglars Target Self-Storage Facilities in Shenandoah County, Va.


Three self-storage facilities in Shenandoah County, Va., have been the targets of recent burglaries.

Over a five-day span beginning July 30, 15 self-storage units at three different facilities were burglarized, according to Shenandoah County Sheriff's Capt. Tom Hodges.

Woodstock Self Storage reported the break in of four units on July 30. Only one storage tenant reported missing property—antique china valued at $750. On Aug. 3, Hawk’s Storage reported four units burglarized, but none of the victims reported anything missing. The same day, a deputy on patrol at Added Storage discovered a lock had been pried off a unit door. Seven units total were burglarized, with one containing a comic-book collection valued at about $250,000, Hodges said.

Investigators believe the burglaries could be connected because all of the units targeted had standard locks. Investigators are reviewing security footage from Hawk’s Storage, the only facility with a video surveillance system.
