For the second time this year Delano Tobacco has been burglarized. The Wright County Sheriff’s Office posted on its Facebook page Aug. 18, security camera footage of a break-in at the store that took place between hours of 3:30 and 4:30 a.m. Aug. 13.
In the videos, two suspects wearing masks and hoodies are seen breaking into the store, and then fleeing the scene to a black car that was parked across the street from the store.
Shanti Whitelaw, the store employee who contacted authorities, said that the two burglars entered the store by breaking the front glass door with a rock. Once inside, the two individuals stole several cartons of cigarettes, disposable e-cigarettes, and several hundred dollars in cash from the cash register.
At the time of publication, no updates have been given by the sheriff’s office, and the burglary is still under investigation. The sheriff’s office is asking anyone who may have any video evidence or information about the burglary, the identity the suspects, or their vehicle to contact the Wright County Sheriff’s Office at 763-682-1162.
