Cass Grocery burglarized Monday


Cass Grocery was burglarized Monday, with the burglar stealing the surveillance camera from the store, along with $50 in change, a lighter and a six-pack of Corona beer.

According to a police report, the Bartow County Sheriff’s Office was called a little before 10 a.m. Monday to Cassville Road in reference to the burglary.

When the responding officer arrived, an employee at the store said she came into work that morning and found the rear doors to the business open, the rear gate open and the chair behind the counter knocked over.

The officer then watched the surveillance footage, and just after midnight, the suspect pulled the camera down and removed it from the video feed. A few seconds later, the rear door came open and the suspect entered wearing a light-colored hoodie, light-colored pants, darks shoes, gloves and something covering his face.

The suspect was directly behind the counter and removed several items from the shelves, including a lunch box with approximately $50 in change that was tucked in the resister on a shelf.

Before leaving, the suspect stopped and removed the six-pack of beer from the cooler.

There were no arrests made at the time of the report.
