Authorities are looking for information about a break-in at a local convenience store early Monday.
Martinsville Police Officers responded around 1 a.m. Monday to an alarm at the Market Square convenience store, according to a release from the police department.
Units arriving at the scene found glass was broken out of the front door. A search failed to find anyone in the building, but it did appear some items may have been taken, the release stated.
The surveillance camera at the store captured the entire incident. The camera recorded a white male who allegedly threw a large cinderblock through the front glass, the release stated. The man allegedly then ran inside the store to the beer section and allegedly took two cartons of beer, according to the release.
Anyone with any information on the man’s identity or the incident is asked to call the Martinsville Police Department at 403-5300, or to remain anonymous call Crimestoppers at 63-CRIME(632-7463).
Rewards also are available through Crimestoppers for information related to unsolved crimes. The amount of any reward is determined by the nature of the crime and the substance of information provided.
