Reward Offered for the Arrest of Five Star Burglars

A reward of $1,000 is being offered by the owner of Five Star in Knox for information that would lead to the arrest and conviction of persons who broke into the store early Monday morning. The burglary took place sometime after 1:00 a.m.

The burglars used an acetylene torch to try to cut into an ATM machine, but no money was stolen. The police told WKVI news that the suspects broke into the store by prying open the back door.

A video camera recorded the burglars’ movements throughout the store after they gained entrance. The security camera footage can be seen here. If you can help identify those who broke into the building, call the Knox City Police Department at 772-4122.

Police are looking for the vehicle used in the incident, a late 1990’s model Chevy Malibu.
