Atlanta police are seeking two burglars who were prevented from making off with approximately $10,000 worth of liquor Thursday morning from Bim’s Package Store.
Officer responding to an audible alarm observed two unidentified black males loading a Ford Expedition with approximately 24 cases of liquor from the package store.
The burglars used a sledgehammer to break through a two-foot thick brick wall to enter the building.
According to police, one of the suspects fled by jumping down a 10-foot wall down to the railroad tracks that run east and west behind the business. With the officer in pursuit, the man jumped on a train that was headed east into downtown just by happenstance.
The other suspect was last seen running west behind the business. Neither suspect was captured. The vehicle – and the liquor - was left behind by the suspects.

While there is little doubt what the main attraction is at Buckhead's newest eatery "Twin Peaks," General Manager Andrew McGehee wants people to know that his restaurant offers much more than just scantily clad waitresses.
The "breastaurant" industry, as it has come to be known for obvious reasons, is definitely booming and Twin Peaks is at the forefront. The girls wear skimpy flannel tops, short shorts and boots (of course). Based in Addison, Texas, sales for Twin Peaks last year grew 35 percent to $44 million from the previous year, according to Technomic, a food industry research firm.
Now at the end of just its second full-service week in Buckhead at 3365 Piedmont Road, McGehee said that business is indeed good. He believes it has more to do with his restaurant being the "ultimate man cave," however, than his employees.
"I don't think it is due to being a "breastaurant," he said. "I think it is based on the level of service that we provide, the quality of food that we have and the overall attention to detail."
