Police find connection between two burglaries

HOXIE, AR (KAIT) - Hoxie Police believe a gas station burglary is connected to a similar case in Bono.

Saturday morning, around 3 a.m., someone broke in the T-Rick's Citgo on Southwest Texas Street.

According to police, the suspect drove up in a black dodge truck, broke in with a "large piece of asphalt", stole the register and then drove off.

"It is the same scenario, it was the same thing over there," Hoxie Chief Glen Smith said. "Same vehicle description. I believe they are connected."

Smith has talked with the Craighead County Sheriff's Department and both are looking into the cases.

If anyone has any information on either burglary, please call either the Hoxie Police Department or the Craighead County Sheriff's Department.
