Burglar busts hole in bathroom for beer

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Jackson police are looking for a man who broke into a convenience store through a bathroom wall.

It happened before dawn Wednesday at the Shell Sprint Mart on Hanging Moss Road. 

Police spokeswoman Colendula Green says it appears the burglar used something like a sledgehammer to bust a hole in the exterior wall of a restroom. Once inside, he stole a large quantity of cigarettes and beer.

As officers arrived on the scene, a black Nissan with a Louisiana tag was driving off.

They're hoping surveillance video will help them find the burglar.
