GREENVILLE — The Mobil gas station in Greenville was broken into and robbed late Tuesday night or early Wednesday morning.
According to lead clerk Mary Mangus, the break-in at 115 E. Washington St. (M-57) occurred between 11 p.m. and 4 a.m., when the store was closed.
Someone threw a brick through the store’s window, entered through the window and stole up to 50 packages of cigarettes.
The Greenville Department of Public Safety is investigating the incident. Sgt Gary Valentine said a complete police report is not yet available.
Mangus said a boot print was left on a piece of glass. She said police took the store’s surveillance video.
“They took a good portion of our cigarettes,” she said of the thieves.
“If they’re gonna rob us, I’m glad they didn’t use a gun,” she added.
The Handy Market in Greenville was broken into in a similar fashion last week. Thieves smashed the front glass door and stole energy pills and synthetic marijuana.
