NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — Metro police are working to identify three men detectives believe are responsible for more than 80 smash-and-grab burglaries at businesses across Nashville.

Officers from all eight precincts in the city are on alert for the burglars, who make entry by smashing through windows and doors before going directly to offices and registers and fleeing with cash and small safes, according to a release.
