Pair Breaks Into Cridersville Store

CRIDERSVILLE — Cridersville Police Chief John Drake is hoping the public can help in identifying two males that broke into a store early Thursday morning.

“We have a real good image on the video surveillance camera of the two suspects that broke into the Community Market store in Cridersville,” Drake said after the break-in at 12:25 a.m. Thursday. “I am hoping somebody can identify the suspects.”

He said they gained entry and made their way to the front office and stole approximately 32 cartons of cigarettes. The estimated value of the cigarettes would be approximately $1,500.

They also took two cash drawers.

Drake said the suspects exited the store through the same door they pried open to gain entry into the grocery.

“We are asking the public to call the Cridersville Police Departmennt at 419-645-4111 or they can call the Auglaize County Sheriff’s Office at 419-739-6565 with any information regarding theft or if they can identify the suspects.”
