Investigation underway in dollar store burglary

NEWBERRY — Last week, the City of Newberry Police Department reported to the Dollar Tree in reference to a burglary. Chief Roy McClurkin said that cash was stolen from the location, and they are still investigating the incident.

“We know there have been some dollar stores burglarized around the state, and we know there have been some around the state that have been similar,” McClurkin said. “To say this is the same people would be premature at this time.”

Evidence has been collected at the crime scene and will be processed through the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division (SLED).
