Robbers smashed in the door of the storage structure outside Arby’s on East Main Street Thursday, stealing an oven and a ladder.

The restaurant closed at 10:30 p.m. Wednesday and the theft went unnoticed until it reopened at 6:30 a.m. Thursday.

Arby’s General Manager Barb Rullis, who informed police of the break-in, said there was no obvious attempt to get into the restaurant, only the storage area.

The Blogett oven and a 6-foot metal ladder were assessed at a total of $300 in the police report. But, Rullis said, the items had no real value because they had not been used in the store for several years.

“It wasn’t a major loss, but it was still breaking and entering and that’s not OK in any sense of the word,” Rullis said.

There have been no arrests made in the case.
