Construction site provided tool for breaking into nearby business

Canton police are looking for someone who used items found at a nearby construction site to break into a Riverstone Parkway business.

According to a Canton Police Department incident report:

At 1:41 a.m. on May 15, an alarm sounded signaling a break-in at a vapor supply store along Riverstone Parkway. When they arrived, officers found a shattered glass door, with a concrete block inside the door.

Police inspected the interior of the store and one display case was open, but it wasn’t apparent that anything had been taken from it.

Surveillance video later showed that a young white man wearing a dark, hooded sweatshirt, light color shorts and dark socks initially used a metal pole to try and break through the shop’s door. When that didn’t work, he used the concrete block.

The video showed the man approach a display case, open it and remove several items.

The store owner was able to give police a list of the items that were taken, which together were valued at about $375.

The case remains under investigation.
