Augusta County Sheriff’s Office investigating attempted commercial burglary

Augusta CountyAugusta County sheriff’s deputies are investigating an attempted commercial burglary reported early Monday morning in Greenville.

Deputies responded around 5 a.m. the morning of July 30 to the Stop Inn Shell station located at 3551 Lee Jackson Highway for the report of an alarm.

Upon arrival, deputies discovered that the front doors had been tampered with and that one of the glass panes was shattered, yet intact.

Video surveillance shows a vehicle park on the edge of the business lot and one of the occupants, believed to be a male, approach the building with a blunt object, possibly a crowbar-type device.

The male in the photo pried on the front door for about 10 seconds before fleeing back to the passenger vehicle. The vehicle is last seen traveling north on Route 11.

The suspect was wearing dark-colored sneakers with white soles and a long-sleeved hooded T-shirt. He appears to have a slim build and weighs approximately 135-140 pounds.

If anyone has any information about this case, contact the Augusta County Sheriff’s Office at 540-245-5333 or Crime Stoppers at 800-322-2017.
