Police are investigating a late-night burglary that occurred about 4:41 a.m. Friday at United Supermarket East.

Enid police responded to the store at 531 E. Broadway after an alarm sounded when the burglar broke a window at the front of the store, just south of the store’s main doors, according to a police report.

Officers searched the store and surrounding area and a K-9 unit was called to the scene, Enid Police Department Capt. Jim Nivison said, but no suspects were found and no arrests were made.

According to the report, the burglar entered the building through the broken window and smashed four cash register tills, causing about $2,000 worth of damage. Nivison said nothing was reported stolen from the store.

The break-in stalled the store’s opening for about an hour, but customers who came to the store between 7 and 8 a.m. returned later, District Manager Bobby Hutcheson said.

“We’re pretty much back to normal,” Hutcheson said Friday evening. “I don’t think it disrupted service much.”

Hutcheson said registers damaged were replaced by registers from two other stores. The damaged registers were repaired Friday afternoon.

“I just hope they get caught,” Hutcheson said.

Anyone with information about this crime is asked to call Garfield County Crime Stoppers at 233-6233 or EPD at 242-7000.
