ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) – More than $10 million in phone-related equipment was taken during a heist at an Orlando business.

Police say thieves climbed through the roof of an empty warehouse over the weekend, then broke through walls to enter Quality One Wireless Inc., sometime after it closed for the weekend Friday.

They disabled several security cameras, but were filmed by others. They used the company’s forklifts to load the merchandise onto three stolen trailers on the loading dock.

According to a police report, the thieves were inside the building long enough to have a meal. They also wiped the area clean of fingerprints. An undisclosed amount of cash was also stolen.
