Deputy Paul Morell of the Carter County Sheriff's Department said the alarm sounded at the store at 3:44 a.m. when the front door glass was smashed,
Security camera footage revealed the burglar had been in a dark compact pickup truck, possibly a mid to late 90's Chevrolet S-10. The truck had a lighter colored tailgate. A man dressed in a dark jacket and mask got out of the driver's side of the truck and used some type of tool to break the glass and kick the window.
The burglar brought a cardboard box inside with him and began loading Marlboro cigarettes that were on a display.
The case is being investigated by Lt. Tim Horne.
