Authorities think Village Grocery robbery attempt connected to others

Authorities are looking for two males who attempted to break in to the Village Grocery on Saturday and who may be involved in area Dollar General store break-ins.
One suspect was seen on store surveillance video looking through the window of the store, located at U.S. 601, Salisbury, around 11:30 p.m. Moments later, a window was broken and the store’s alarm system sounded.
Rowan Sheriff’s officials say the crime is similar to break-ins that occurred throughout the weekend at Dollar General stores, in which two men broke a front window and took numerous packs of cigarettes from a display case. Those Dollar General store robberies occurred in Salisbury, Granite Quarry and China Grove.
The Dollar General in Salisbury at Mooresville Road was broken into Sunday around 2 a.m. and the Granite Quarry store was broken into at 4 a.m., officials there said in a statement.
In the Granite Quarry incident, the suspects were seen on surveillance video throwing a rock through a front window and using a hammer to smash the glass door to the cigarette case. The suspect brought the hammer and a backpack with them. The two took a large number of Newport cigarettes.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Billy Basinger at 704-216-8715 or Lt. Chad Moose at 704-216-8687.
