4:20 am
and flying back on the ground. he loks like he's going to walk away but comes back with a rock.. and repeatedly slams it into the door until he manages to make a hole.. loses a shoe, puts it back on.. and squeezes his body through the hole.. in this moment.. you see this vehicle driving by. police say.. that is the witness who happened to be driving by during the break-in and called police... so the suspect is now inside.. police say.. he stole the cash register.. but left it nearby because it didn't have any money in it. they tell us.. the suspect also took 5- thousand dollars in lottery dollars in lottery tickets. jillian hunter/concordi don't necessarily see a lot of crime in this area. i do work by arnold industrial. and there is quite a few homeless people over there. people with drug issues and things like that and i personally have been jumped in a parking lot, while working. and it's just ridiculous.james anderson/concordi've lived here for many years and they have been broken into several
4:21 am
times, for no reason. i've seen the front door and the glass broken many many a time. and they're the nicest people, they are our local little store. i think it's crazy that right here in concord that this happens. and they only stole lottery tickets which are instantly cancelled. (hermela aregawi)and what he stole is part of why police are calling him the bumbling burglar. the stolen lottery tickets are immediately reported to the state and voided. so that means.. for all the suspect's efforts.. he didnt' walk away with anything. if you recognize the suspect or have any information about the incident.. you are asked to call concord police. reporting in concord hermela aregawi kron 4 news.
