Bandits cut their way into Cairo Dollar General

Employees arriving to open a Cairo Dollar General store for business on New Year’s Eve, discovered burglars had cut their way into the building and the store’s safe. Cairo Police say surveillance video shows two suspects had pulled off the heist about seven hours earlier at 12:30 a.m. Both burglars were covered from head to toe to conceal their identities.

“They were familiar that the store had a surveillance system,” says Cairo Police investigator Wandell Asbell of the suspects’ all-over clothing.

Asbell says the duo first attempted to break into the store by cutting through the sheet metal siding at the back of the building, located at 2960 U.S. 84 in Cairo.
