The burglar(s) only took money from the bottom of the cash register which was "bank" money, is mostly one dollar bills and change that is kept for the next day's opening. The employee said it appears the thief(s) tried to break in to the top draw of the register but were unable to do so.
Images of the person were captured by the surveillance system however there were no faces on the camera.
The employee said police think it may have been someone who was familiar with the store because it appears the thief(s) were able to avoid having their faces show up on surveillance cameras.
