HOOVER — A convenience store clerk in Hoover found that thieves had employed a unique method to burglarize the Sunny Foods store late in the week.
According to WVTM, the Hoover PD got a report of the burglary of the convenience store, which is located at 1571 Cahaba Valley Road, on Friday morning.
The owner of the location reported that thieves likely used a ventilation opening to get inside the store. Burglars then disabled the alarm panel, video surveillance and severed the phone lines, according to WVTM.
Burglars absconded with cash, alcohol and cigarettes, said WVTM.
Authorities suspect that at least two burglars were involved and they may be using an SUV that is dark in color.
Anyone with information about this event is requested to contact Detective Clifton Washington at (205) 739-7242.
