ROCK HILL Scattered money and an open safe were the only things left behind in an office at a Rock Hill Staples store this weekend after police say someone broke in and took more than $3,000 from the business.
Officers responded to the Staples, 2350 Cross Pointe Drive off Dave Lyle Boulevard, at 2:30 a.m. Saturday after receiving word that the alarm had sounded, according to a Rock Hill Police report. They found the back door open, but everything else looked normal.
The store’s general manager arrived and walked through the building with officers. The alarm showed activity in the cash office, which officers found locked. When the manager opened the door, police saw that the safe was open and money was scattered on the floor, the report states.
The manager realized that $3,500 in cash was missing from the safe. He said only four employees other than himself have access to the office. Each person, he said, has their own alarm code. Police did not find any signs of forced entry on the safe.
