LINCOLN, Calif. (CBS13) – For the second week in a row, a Lincoln business has been hit by thieves who smash out windows and grab merchandise. This time, the suspects targeted a small grocery store but only took cigarettes.
Lincoln police say someone smashed in the glass doors of the shop on 5th Street and once inside took off with a large amount of cigarettes. The store’s owner tells CBS13 that he does have an alarm system, but its unclear if it actually went off during the burglary.
This is in the same area as a burglary at a Lincoln jewelry store last week where thieves also broke windows and grabbed as much merchandise as possible.
Police have not determined whether the two crimes are related.
