ATLANTA -- Burglars used a car to smash into an Atlanta shoe store and steal merchandise early Monday.

The robbery happened shortly before 3 a.m. at the Foot Locker on Metropolitan Parkway.

Atlanta Police dispatchers said the thieves drove a Dodge Intrepid into the front of the store, breaking a window. They got into the store through the broken window.

Atlanta Police Sgt. Greg Lyon said store security video showed the suspects backing the Dodge into the store. About 15 suspects took clothing and shoes before escaping in a getaway car, which appeared to be a dark red Chevrolet pickup truck with a bright light bar on its back end.

The Dodge used in the robbery was reported stolen out of Clayton County, Lyon said. It was found abandoned in the Foot Locker parking lot.
