About 50 units at an Uncle Bob’s Self Storage facility in Bessemer, Ala., were broken into last Thursday. The burglary happened sometime during the night, police said.
The burglar cut the locks from the units, including a unit rented by a contractor of DirecTV, a provider of satellite television. Some of the boxes in the unit were torn open, but nothing was taken. A lawnmower was stolen from another unit. The burglary is still under investigation.
