According to Greenville Police Department, on the morning of Aug. 1 at approximately 3:30 a.m. Greenville Police Department received a call in reference to an alarm at the Corner Stop on Halso Mill Rd.
On arrival officers found the front door glass broken out and several items taken from inside. Investigators arrived on scene and were able to collect some physical evidence as well as review security footage.
CID Commander, Captain Justin Lovvorn, said, “We observed two black males force their way into the store and take several items, including alcoholic beverages and cigars. The two black males were wearing gloves and one had a mask on.”
Lovvorn also stated, on Aug. 9, at approximately 5:15 a.m., officers responded to another alarm call from the Corner Stop. Officers arrived and once again found the glass of the front door broken out and several items missing from inside. Investigators were again called out and processed the scene.
