Man Breaks into Grocery Store

Police are searching for a man who broke into a downtown grocery store overnight. Around 1:30am this morning, an alarm went off at the Food Lion on Victory Drive. When police arrived, an officer saw the suspect inside the store and called for backup.

They went in to get him, but the suspect managed to get past them and into the marshes. Police searched around Truman Parkway and Casey Canal with K-9s on the ground and their helicopter in the air for three hours, but came up empty handed.

They say the suspect apparently crawled into the store through the roof.
