Police found a black ski mask, two iron pipes and an empty camouflage backpack near the Golden Corral restaurant on Anderson Road in Rock Hill after responding to an alarm activation.
Officers found the front door shattered and the back door open around 1:45 a.m. Sunday, according to a Rock Hill police report. Inside the restaurant, they found the office door was open, although an employee said she had closed and locked it. An “undetermined amount of cash” had been taken, although the safe did not appear to have been damaged and was still locked.
A K-9 unit ran a track and found the backpack, mask and pipes. Officers noted that although the grass was wet with dew, the items were dry.
There were no security cameras.
