The League City Police Department Patrol Division and Community Impact Unit have been working together, taking a proactive approach to combating recent burglaries at Best Buy stores across the State of Texas, including the League City location. There have been approximately fifty burglaries, during the nighttime hours, at Best Buy locations resulting in a loss of over one million dollars to the company. These burglaries are all similar in that suspects broke out the front windows or would pry open doors to gain entry. The primary target during these burglaries has been Apple products.
On May 3, 2019, officers were in the vicinity of Best Buy conducting covert surveillance using advanced systems. At 0209, officers determined that an attempted break-in was occurring at Best Buy. Officers arriving at Best Buy observed a white passenger vehicle pull out of the parking lot adjacent to Best Buy and onto the public roadway.
