BENNETTSVILLE, SC (WMBF) - The Marlboro County Sheriff's Office is seeking information regarding a burglary at Crossroads Grocery on Highway 38 South and Bounty Acres Rd in Bennettsville SC. The incident occurred Wednesday morning between 3 a.m. and 4 a.m.
Sheriff Knight believes the suspects were targeting the ATM, but then switched plans once the attempt to move the machine was unsuccessful.
The suspects were able to remove the outside video cameras, but were caught on video once they entered the store. Both suspects were dressed similarly in dark clothing with one being taller than the other; the shorter suspect appeared to have a stocky build.
According to police investigation and video surveillance, the taller suspect waited at the door with the hand truck, while the shorter suspect jumped across the counter and stole several cartons of Newport cigarettes.
Sheriff Knight is asking everyone to view the surveillance photos and contact the Marlboro County Sheriff's Office if they have any information regarding the case or suspects. All information will be kept confidential.
