SUBJECT: Kingsport Detectives Attempting to Identify Burglary Suspects
DATE: March 6, 2015
CASE #: 15-003985
On March 3, 2015 at approximately 6:00 AM, an employee of Jay Food Mart, located at 1300 East Stone Drive in Kingsport, arrived at work to find that the business had been burglarized. Kingsport Police were immediately called to the scene, and an investigation ensued.

A review of surveillance video footage revealed that approximately 30 minutes earlier that morning, an unknown white male suspect wearing a mask gained entry by throwing a concrete block through the window. Once inside, the suspect stole four packs of cigarettes, a box of expired Little Debbie snacks, 2 cans of Monster Energy Ripper Juice, and a bottle of Mellow Yellow. As the suspect exited with his loot, he placed the Little Debbie snacks on the window frame. A second suspect could be seen reaching back in and collecting them. The total value of the stolen items was $43, while the cost to repair the shattered window will easily exceed that amount.

Photos of the first suspect are included in this release. Three clips from the surveillance video footage have been made available for viewing on the K.P.D. YouTube channel via the links below:

Anyone who recognizes this suspect or who may have any information that may help detectives solve this case is asked to contact the K.P.D. Criminal Investigations Division at 423-229-9429 or call Kingsport Central Dispatch at 423-246-9111.

Alternatively, if an individual who is able to supply information related to this or any other case wishes not to be identified, tips can be submitted anonymously via online “Citizen Feedback” forms available at the following link:
