More than $2,000 in cash and several packs of cigarettes were pocketed overnight on Thursday, during a burglary at Shorewood’s Citgo gas station.
According to the police report, sometime between 9 p.m. on Wednesday and 6:46 a.m. on Thursday, a double pane window on the business at 1602 E. Capitol Dr. was cracked, the window trim removed and the window taken down to gain entry.
Once inside, 30 packs of Newport cigarettes worth $224, several cigars and $2,195 in cash were stolen.
A police investigation is ongoing.
The gas station has been targeted in burglaries in the past, particularly two incidents a little over a year ago, where bricks were thrown through the front door and a combined $2,650 worth of cigarettes stolen.
