Someone used a cinder block to break the glass on the front door at the Pitt Stop on Sylvester Road about 3:20 Tuesday morning.
The thief grabbed a safe with one thousand dollars in it, the cash register drawer with another $10, and a carton of Newport cigarettes.
Investigators recovered the empty safe about 10:00AM near a holding pond on Pine Bluff Road. Now they're trying to find out if the same man broke into Pitt Stop and the Rite-Aid store.
"We will be in contact with the city police and to see what the similarities are, if any. And go from there," said DCP Sgt. Chad Kirkpatrick.
The store's surveillance cameras were not working so there is no video of the break in.
If you have any information about either store burglary, call CRIMESTOPPERS at 436-TIPS.
