Detectives are working to identify a suspect who busted into a market with a rock, and stole multiple cartons of cigarettes.
Officers were summoned to Mario’s Market, located at 14851 Lebanon Road, after a cleaning crew noticed the front glass was busted around 6 a.m., Monday, August 14.
Officers arrived to find the glass broken, a large rock inside, and multiple cartons of cigarettes stolen.
Detectives responded to the scene to collect and process evidence. Video surveillance captured the suspect in the act, who broke in earlier that morning.
Additionally, another nearby market’s surveillance captured the same suspect possibly attempting to break into that store as well.
