Boardman police probe attempted break-in at Family Dollar store


BOARDMAN — Police are investigating who threw a large rock to break into the Family Dollar on South Avenue just after midnight today.

Police arrived to the store after an alarm was activated. Upon arrival, police noticed a large rock inside the store and the bottom of a glass door shattered. The damage is estimated at costing $2,000, according to a police report.

Review of surveillance footage showed a white man, wearing a red-hooded sweatshirt and camouflage shorts, enter the business by crawling through the broken glass door, according to a police report.

The man went back to the ATM machine, but as soon as the alarm lights flashed he fled.

No items were taken from the store.
