JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Jonesboro police are investigating after a business was broken into overnight Friday.

Officers responded to The Learning Center of Jonesboro, 3800 S. Caraway Rd., around 6:30 a.m. Saturday in response to a commercial burglary.

The business owner told police they had closed around 5 p.m. Friday then realized Saturday morning that the building had been broken into.

The owner showed officers that thieves had cut off power at the back of the building before breaking the lock on the front door to get inside.

According to the police report, suspects took a small, portable safe that was located in a small hallway, underneath a miniature fridge.

They also took a Toshiba Laptop and a small HDTV that was mounted on the wall.

The owner said only one customer out of the 40-50 on Friday had paid with cash. He told officers that the customer who paid with cash saw him put it in the safe.

There was also a drop box on the front door of a neighboring business that was lying open.
