Around 4:15 a.m., two thieves wearing white ski masks and gloves cut a hole in the roof and climbed into the business, where they used power tools to break into the safes storing $250,000, sources confirmed.

The crooks spent two hours inside the business before surveillance cameras recorded them leaving just before 6 a.m., according to sources.

Three employees, who asked us not to identify them because they are not authorized to speak with the media, told Channel 2 that multiple surveillance cameras recorded the heist.


The same employees also reported that the suspects were last seen running from the business.

Channel 2 Action News has reached out to the club via email, Instagram, and phone but we haven’t received a response.

Channel 2 Action News also reached out to Atlanta police, but a spokesperson declined to comment, citing the ongoing investigation.
