Deputies probing store burglary

TAHLEQUAH — Cherokee County sheriff’s deputies are investigating after Speedy’s convenience store was burglarized early Wednesday morning.

Deputies said the suspect likely used a chunk of concrete to break a main glass door. Video surveillance showed the suspect walk past the doors at about 2:35 a.m., then break in and jump the counter three minutes later.

Store employees said the suspect took nearly 125 packs of cigarettes and 50 lighters before fleeing the store.

The suspect is described as an Indian male standing about 6 feet tall and weighing 185-200 pounds. He was wearing a dark-colored tank top, red pants, dark shoes, and white gloves.
