ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — New surveillance video has been released of the burglary that occurred Sunday night at Foodlink on Mt. Read Boulevard.
According to RPD, the suspects forced their way into the building and stole hundreds of pounds of food, as well as diapers and paper products from a donation sorting area in the warehouse. They left the scene before police arrived.
Foodlink adds that two people were shown on video committing the theft. After a small window was broken into, one wiggled in to prop a door open. The two then could be seen taking the stolen items in a truck.

No suspects are in custody and anyone with information on the burglary is asked to call 911.
Foodlink has released a statement regarding the break-in, with CEO and president Julia Tedesco re-affirming the community that their operations and programs will not be seriously impacted.
“The real impact to the mission is waking up on a Monday morning to find out that this happened, devoting a lot of time and energy to figure out what happened,” said Mark Dwyer, the communications lead with Foodlink, on Monday afternoon.
“Foodlink was made aware of a break-in to our facility late Sunday night and is cooperating with the Rochester Police Department on the investigation,” said Tedesco. “We will review security footage to determine the extent of the damage, and are deeply disappointed at the theft of both food and non-food items from our distribution center.”
Dwyer added Monday they will be adding more security patrols at the facility for the future.
