Three individuals burgled the Gas N’ Go off Glacier Highway early Tuesday morning, breaking a window to get inside.
“They just broke through a window and just took some items,” said Austin Lanz, the manager of the Gas N’ Go. “We’re doing a full inventory tonight.”
The suspects used a rock to break through the window on the side of the building away from the road before stealing a number of vaping-related supplies, said assistant manager Melissa Lytle. They broke in at about 1:40 a.m., setting off the alarm. The building was closed and empty at the time. Police were on the scene less than three minutes later, Lytle said.
“We get all the trouble that comes through here,” said William Cameron, an employee helping to tidy up Tuesday morning.
Video cameras recorded three suspects, Lytle said, including two suspects who entered the building through the broken window, as well as a third suspect who stayed outside the building. All three suspects wore masks, Lanz said.
The last break-in at the Gas N’ Go was roughly seven months ago, Cameron said.
The police are investigating the break-in, Lanz said. The window is due to be replaced by early next week, if not sooner, Lytle said.
Assistant Police Chief David Campbell said that the Juneau Police Department is investigating a number of leads.
