Police investigating weekend gas station burglary

Posted: Updated:

The owner of an Evansville gas station says more than $10,000 in cash and more than $7,50 worth of cigarettes were taken in a weekend burglary.  

It happened at the Marathon station off North Burkhardt on Interstate Drive.

The owner tells police it happened early Sunday morning and the thieves cut the phone line and disabled the security alarm and the surveillance system. 

"They were very smart, they know what they are doing and very, very, very professional. They know what to do, they know the system and they know what wire to be disconnected and all that," store Muhammed Raza said.

Evansville police ask anyone with information about this crime to report it.
