He went outside to see what it was and found a box of frozen food that looked to have been thrown onto the ground.

The employee said that two laptops were also stolen from the center but he did not know the brand or serial numbers. He said he would find out that information as soon as possible and give it to police.

While on scene, officers found where the suspect broke into the building. They also found a closet that someone had broken into but the employee said it didn’t seem as anything was stolen.
