New Woodstock Madison County Sheriff’s deputies are investigating a burglary of the New Woodstock Store, 2092 Main Street in New Woodstock, which occurred at 6 a.m. Tuesday, Jan. 22.
According to the sheriff’s office, deputies discovered that an unknown person(s) broke a window to gain entry to the convenience store and stole a large amount of tobacco items and loose change with a total value of more than $2,600.
Sheriff’s office investigators have conducted interviews with several people, and evidence technicians have processed and collected evidence at the scene.
Madison County Undersheriff John Ball said there has been a number of burglaries during the past few months in the northern part of the county, and investigators are looking into the possibility of a connection between these and the New Woodstock break-in, particularly a burglary that occurred at the Predmore’s General Store several months ago in Georgetown.
“We are seeing if there is any reason to suspect that this might be the same individual,” he told the Cazenovia Republican.
Anyone who may have been in the area of the New Woodstock Store between 4 a.m. and 6 a.m. that may have seen anything out of the ordinary is asked to contact Madison County Sheriff’s Investigators at 366-2311. Tips will remain confidential.
