RICHMOND, Va. -- Police are looking for a group of men who stole more than $100,000 worth of merchandise from a Richmond store.

“Between approximately 2 a.m. - 3 a.m. on Sunday, May 31, security video shows nine to 10 suspects entering Experimax – located at 1307 West Main Street – three separate times,” a Richmond Police spokesperson said. “The suspects stole almost all the computer equipment, cellphones, and registers in the store. They also took a handgun from inside a desk drawer.”

Located in the Fan, near the VCU campus, Experimax is a computer repair store that focuses on Apple products. A GoFundMe set up to aid the business owner has raised more than $35,000.

Richmond Police released images of the men wanted for the crime and an image of their vehicle. Police said it appeared the men were in a black Mercedes-Benz SUV.
