BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Several people who rent units from a self-storage facility in Baton Rouge believe they may have been robbed by someone who is familiar with the property. It was burglarized last weekend.
Tiffanie Brumfield rents a storage unit from Tom Drive Self-Storage. She said managers waited too long to tell her someone broke into her unit. When she showed up, she found her lock snapped at the foot of the door. When she looked inside, her things had been moved around and a lot of it was missing.
Brumfield made a whole list of things she believes were stolen. She said D.J. equipment and two sets of speakers were gone. She and other renters believe the burglary was more than just a random, quick hit.
"They had to break in with a very large truck," Brumfield said. "I think it was an inside job."
According to Brumfield, some of the reasons she chose to store her belongings at Tom Drive were the 24-hour surveillance and one security gate for entering and exiting. However, that didn't stop someone from helping themselves to the contents in her unit and seven others in the alley.
There were surveillance cameras on the property, but none of them were facing that row of storage units. An on-site manager declined to comment on the incident.
"I'm quite upset and I think I'm going to take further measures," Brumfield said.
A spokesman for the Baton Rouge Police Department said a total of eight storage units were burglarized that night. He added investigators are unsure whether it was an inside job.
