Early morning burglar at gas station caught on video

December 14th, 2012 · 4 Comments

The owner of the Shell gas station on 34Th & W Government Way sent us this email today:
Someone tried to break in my station on 12/14/12 at 2:34am but the alarm went off after he/she broke the front door glass and the burglar ran away.
I have interesting video and pictures, and from what I see in the video this thief is local and live in the neighborhood cause he/she came walking to check out the station then left then came back walking after 6 minutes with a big rock and big plastic box, the burglar tried to use the big rock to break the glass door but the front door glass cracked then the alarm went off.
Thought to let everyone know to watch out for their properties. the burglar was white with dark hair, heavy set, and 5′ 4″ tall, and was wearing a striped blue shirt with a black leather jacket on top, black shoes, and white pants.
Be on the lookout!

    The alarm woke me up two blocks away. I can see why did he didn’t want to hang out very long.

    someone also tried to break in at Seven Hills Running Shop, Wednesday night. They didn’t manage to get the back door open, but did some damage. Needless to say, we’re beefing up security!

    So basically we have a crime spree here in Magnolia. I guess its time for residents to personal security up. On a good note I did see a parked police car near teriyaki bowl trying to catch speeders. You know the important things.
