Magnolia’s Metropolitan Market was broken into early Sunday morning, sometime between midnight and 5am. According to Assistant Store Director, Nick Novak, the burglars threw a large rock through a panel in the north entrance, and then smashed out a glass door in the spirits case. At least $500 in liquor was stolen.
Novak says the thieves bypassed the high-end spirits for less expensive liquor.
Police are searching for those responsible for the crime. Novak adds that there has been an increase in graffiti around the store this summer.
