Investigators with the Criminal Investigations Division of the Bay County Sheriff’s Office are asking for the help of the public to identify three males who are suspects in the burglary of a convenience store.
On June 29, 2012, deputies responded to an alarm at a convenience store located at 2708 E. 15th Street, at about 3:43 a.m. Once at the store they found the glass front door had been shattered. The manager of the store was contacted and came to the scene. It was discovered that an electrical box outside the rear of the store had been tampered with, but nothing inside the store appeared to have been taken.
A review of the store security video system revealed three black males approaching the store, going around back of the store before one of them appears again at the front of the store and shoots the front door, shattering the glass. The suspects did not enter the store right away but waited nearby to see if an alarm would alert law enforcement. After about four minutes they enter the store, tripping an alarm at that time. All three suspects fled the scene on foot.
Anyone with any information about these suspects is asked to contact the Bay County Sheriff’s Office at 747-4700. Those wishing to remain anonymous are asked to call Crime Stoppers at 785-TIPS.
