 On January 23, 2008 at approximately 0000 hrs. officers received a call from dispatch to a burglary alarm at 2223 North College (Stop-N-Go).  While en-route dispatch advised that the motion was from the office area and glass breakage.  Upon my arrival I noticed the front door to be shattered out.  I also noticed that the inside of the business had the vent on the ceiling was laying on the ground.  After officers cleared the business of any suspects or victims I noticed that a change operating game had been broken and a lot of the change was missing.  I then looked at the vent on the ceiling and noticed that I could see the sky through the vent.  I then noticed several packs of cigarettes laying throughout the store.  I also saw a Marlboro cigarette pack laying just outside the front door that was broken.      
     All the broken glass from the door was on the outside of the business.  As I was processing the scene *** arrived on scene.  *** told me that he did have surveillance on the building.  At that time I watched the tape.  On the tape I noticed a subject come in the business from the roof wearing brown coveralls and a blue toboggan.  When the subject entered the business he first went behind the counter and started grabbing cigarettes.  As he was doing this I noticed that the subject was a white male.  I then observed the subject break into the change operating game with what appeared to be a crow bar.  After that the subject went towards the back of the store.  As he was doing all of this he had grabbed a trash can emptied it and was putting all the items into it.  The subject then came back into front of the store towards the front door.  It looked like the subject attempted to pry the door open first, but was unable to do so.  He then broke the door and exited the store. 
  *** told me that about 8 cartons of Newport cigarettes, 8 cartons of Monarch cigarettes, about 60 packs of assorted Marlboro cigarettes, about 36 packs of assorted Monarch cigarettes, and about $200.00 worth of quarters were missing. 
     I also went to the roof of the business to see how he gained entry into the store.  I noticed on the side of the vent there was a piece of metal pried up from the vent.       
     ^^^ was called on scene to fix the broken door.  They advised it would cost approximately $600.00 to repair the door.      
     Several fingerprints and photos were taken of the scene and from the scene.  The video was also collected as evidence.
