Crooks break into local businesses, steal cigarettes and gumball machine | Crime
Five dollars and a gumball machine.
Jonesboro police say that’s all a crook got for his troubles after breaking into a local business.
According to the initial police report, the burglary occurred sometime between 5 p.m. Saturday and 7 a.m. Monday.
The owner of Jonesboro Hydraulics, Zachary Gilliam, told police when he arrived at work Monday morning he found a bay door pried up, with a tear large enough to allow a person to enter.
Gilliam said nothing was missing from the shop, other than $5 from a cash drawer and a gumball machine.
In an unrelated case, just after midnight Tuesday morning someone broke into Adam’s Market, 617 W. Huntington Ave.
Officers conducted a walk-through with the owner, Mohammed Benmhammed, who said the only thing missing was 37 packs of Newport 100s cigarettes valued at $165.
There are no suspects at this time in either case.
