Investigators determined that two males were at the business around 10:25 p.m. One of them used a rock to smash the door and gain entry.

They say a small amount of cash was taken from the register before both fled. Damage to the business was estimated to be around $600.

The first suspect was wearing a black jacket with logos on the left shoulder and a reflective stripe on the hood, dark pants, a dark mask and gloves. The second was wearing a dark hoodie, red shirt, dark pants and a dark face mask.
