Early morning break-in/larceny at mini mart in Burlington

Burlington police responded to an early morning (3:14 a.m.) alarm at the Kwik Way mini mart, 2753 Alamance Road (just south of I-85/40), to discover a break-in and larceny of cash register tills.

When officers arrived, they found a broken front window and apparent signs of entry. Officers cleared the business with the assistance of the Alamance County Sheriff Office K9, without finding anyone inside.   

Using the business’ surveillance video, police found that the suspects entered the parking lot of the mini mart at approximately 3:06 a.m. in a dark-colored, four-door sedan (see photos below), exited the vehicle, and shattered the window using a sledgehammer.

  • Suspect #2 – black, male, average build and height, wearing a black-hooded sweatshirt, black “Adidas” brand track pants, white high-top shoes with a red bandana covering his face; he was the driver of the vehicle.
