Police are investigating a break-in at Peter Pan Superette that occurred early Monday morning.

Police responded to the Downing Square convenience store at 2 Park Ave. at about 3:50 a.m. on Jan. 6 to investigate a cash-register alarm.

Once on scene, officers found that a window had been broken to gain entry into the store and the store’s cash register had been entered. The store’s owner later told police that 5-8 cartons of Marlboro Red cigarettes had also been taken (worth about $80 each).

Officers, including a K-9 unit, immediately searched the area but did not locate any suspects.

Two suspects were seen on surveillance footage, however, according to police.

One suspect had a skinny build and was wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt, which was pulled tight to cover his face, winter gloves and dark colored pants. The suspect was also possibly wearing Nike Shox.

The other suspect had a large build and was wearing a hooded sweatshirt, also pulled tight, with a black puffy jacket over it.

The suspects used a crowbar-like tool to break the window, police said. Police believe they fled in a motor vehicle.
