As employees were preparing to open the store early Sunday morning, Casey’s General Store located at Fifth Street and Hartford Aveneue was forcibly entered. Employees hid until police arrived.
At approximately 3:20 a.m., both employees heard glass break, hid and called 911 to report a burglary in progress. One clerk saw the suspect and reported the suspect’s clothing description as a dark colored coat, jeans and a red bandana tied at the neck. The surveillance photo of the suspect shows the suspect to be Caucasian with brown hair and dark framed eyeglasses.
The suspect walked toward the beer cooler, smiled and then took two 12-packs of canned Budweiser beer. From surveillance video, the suspect was only in the store for approximately 30 seconds. Police are asking for the assistance of the public to identify the suspect.
Although the inventory loss was minimal, the damage to the store was approximately $1,000.
