ATHENS, Ga. (AP) --

Police say a group of thieves swarmed a farmers market in northeast Georgia, where they distracted the owners and got away with $8,000 from a money drawer.

Athens-Clarke police say the theft happened Monday afternoon at
the market on Danielsville Road.

The Athens Banner-Herald reports that five suspects were involved.
Four of them were described as being in their 20s or 30s, and the fifth man is older.

Police said they left in a four-door Dodge pickup with some type of decoration on the grill and pulling a trailer with a toolbox. Workers at the farmers market said the men appeared to be professional thieves who used "slick" talk while distracting them.
