Video: 2 sought after animal hospital burglarized in Spartanburg


SPARTANBURG, SC (WSPA) – Spartanburg Police Department officials said an Upstate animal hospital was burglarized early Thursday morning.

According to a police department report, officers were called to Pine Street Animal Hospital, located at 980 S. Pine St., in reference to a robbery.

Surveillance video captured two males approaching the hospital with their faces covered and both were wearing gloves.

In the video, the suspects walked up the back staircase. One of the suspects walked backward to the rear security camera and unplugged it and the other person then tried to pry open the back door, but was not successful.

The two then went to the side entrance and were able to pry open the door, and went inside the building.

According to the report, the pair went to the cabinet where petty cash was kept and took the cash.

Veterinarian, Dr. Glenn Adcock says the men appeared to know exactly what they were looking for.

“Either they’re associated with somebody’s whose familiar with our day to day operations or they’ve been in the building enough times to be familiar with our day to day operations,” said Adcock.

Nothing else was taken from the animal hospital and no damage was reported inside the business.

Police said both suspects were wearing gloves.

Pine Street Animal Hospital posted on their Facebook page Thursday about the incident, saying all of their borders and hospitalized patients were safe.

Anyone with information is asked to call Spartanburg Police Department at (864) 573-0000.
