South Boston Police Department is investigating a burglary that occurred at Jiffy Food Store located on John Randolph Boulevard in South Boston sometime between Wednesday night and Thursday morning.
According to Capt. B. K. Lovelace, at 5:10 a.m. Thursday morning a store employee reported they arrived to work to find the ATM machine open, and the suspect had gained entry through the roof.
The burglar also had broken into the safe and fled with an undisclosed amount of money, Lovelace said.
Authorities arrived on the scene around 5:30 a.m. and collected evidence to send to the lab.
At this point, Lovelace said authorities are unsure if the recent burglaries in the Town of Halifax are connected to this case.
Detective Randy Redd is the investigating officer.
Lovelace asks anyone with information on this burglary to contact the South Boston Police Department at 434-575-7273 and Crime Line at 476-8445.
