An officer who arrived at the store found a broken glass door and that the metal-gated door protecting the outside was up, said police spokesman Darren Duarte.
365体育官网"The officers checked the business and discovered that someone took the drawer to the cash register and cigarettes," Duarte said.
365体育官网After searching the area, police say they located some of the cigarettes — as well as the empty cash register drawer — on nearby Myrtle Street.
365体育官网"Investigators checked the surveillance video, which showed two males breaking into the building," Duarte said.
The video shows that one of the men went inside and filled a bag with cartons of cigarettes and an undisclosed amount of cash from the register drawer, he said.
Detectives are investigating whether the break-in may be connected to any other recent break-ins in the city. Anyone with information on the case is asked to call Brockton police detectives at 508-941-0234.
"It remains under investigation," Duarte said.
