Convenience Store Break In Caught On Tape

   Someone had a serious nicotine fit over the weekend. A trio of thieves broke into the Gladiolas Express on Harrisburg road and stole almost $1200 in smokes and lighters.  The video we have this week doesn't give us the best look at our suspects. But you can see that they broke through the front door by breaking the window. They went to work fast. They were inside the store for one minute. In that time, they snagged loads of cigarettes, cigars and lighters. If you think you know something about this crime that can help police make the arrest, call Crimestoppers right now, 935-STOP. You can also call toll free, 888-566-STOP. No one will ask you name. You are completely anonymous.

    Here's who we're looking for on Warrant Watch this week.  Ryan Viets is wanted by JPD. He has 8 fail to appear warrants.

   He's followed by Edwin Earl Wallace, Jr. Ol' Edwin Earl has seven warrants. One for failure to appear and half a dozen more for revocation of probation. Do you know where to find Eedwin Eearl Wallace Jr. or Ryan Viets?  If so, call Crimestoppers and let 'em know, becuase that info is worth cash. When you call 935-STOP, you'll get a tip number. That's your ID. Write it down and keep watching Crimestoppers. If you see your suspect get the stamp, call Sgt. Steve McDaniel at JPD and give him your tip number. If you cracked the case, it's worth cash. Give 'em a call. And remember, when you see crime, call Crimestoppers, 935-STOP.
