Spotsy investigating ABC store burglary
Spotsylvania County authorities are investigating a burglary of the Alcohol and Beverage Control store in Thornburg late Friday night.
A security alarm alerted Spotsylvania deputies to a burglary at 6348 Jefferson Davis Highway.
When deputies arrived to the ABC store in the Traveler’s Row Shopping Center, they found the front glass door had been shattered, said Capt. Jeff Pearce of the sheriff’s office.
He said a perimeter was set up and the area was surrounded, but no suspects were located.
Detectives and the store’s owner arrived to the scene and discovered that several cases of alcohol were missing from the store, Pearce said.
“It was a smash and grab type burglary,” he said.
Detectives are following up on leads and the investigation is ongoing, he said.
