Unknown offender breaks into Family Dollar in Bainbridge

Thursday, April 7, 2011

BAINBRIDGE -- The Family Dollar in the town of Bainbridge, located at 209 E. U.S. Highway 36, was broken into on Sunday morning.

According to Town Marshall Rodney Fenwick, the offender broke into the store through the front door glass, took money from the register, and left the store. There is currently no information about the offender or offenders to give as there were no security cameras.

There was also a break-in at the Family Dollar Store in Crawfordsville, but it is not known whether the two incidents are related.

Anyone with information about the break-in may call Fenwick's office at 522-6238.

  • since they broke in ,my question is why was there money still in the registar.i have been a cashier for years,and you never leave money in the drawer,unless your running the register,and the store is opened.i really think this was an inside job,mainly because they knew the money was in the drawers,and nothing else was taken,per the report in the paper.this was an inside job.my suggestion would be check out employees and their friends.no store allowes ther employee's to close a store and leave money in the drawer's.

  • You think someone working in the Family Dollar would think about still breaking the front door glass to cover their tracks?

    Any thief is going to check register drawers. Obviously the best place to look--and if there is money left in those drawers after hours that can be stolen--well thats just a stupid store policy or an employee mistake (but then I guess they could have told someone else to break in for them, huh?).

  • Left the money in the drawer? After the other business break ins in the area you'd think people would take some precautions.
