JACKSON (WNE) — The Jackson Police Department is investigating its first burglary of the year, which occurred in the early morning hours Thursday at the Shell gas station on Broadway.
Lt. Russ Ruschill of the Jackson Police Department said police received a call at 5:45 a.m. Thursday from an employee who was opening the store.
“It was pretty apparent that the business was burglarized overnight,” Ruschill said. “It looks like a one-time incident. There’s not a string of burglaries we’re aware of.”
No one was injured.
Ruschill said some “sundries” and cash were stolen. He remained tight-lipped about the amount of money taken but said a burglary in Wyoming is immediately a felony, punishable by imprisonment for not more than 10 years, a fine of not more than $10,000, or both.
After seeing evidence of a forced entry through a back door, detectives believe two burglars committed the crime, Ruschill said.
Recently installed license plate cameras around town will be used to investigate the Thursday burglary, Ruschill said, along with “all police department resources.”
