Smithville Police are investigating a burglary early Monday morning at Jewel's Market on South Congress Boulevard.
The offense report states that \"On or about Monday, June 11st at approximately 1:19 a.m., Officer Leilani Defore was dispatched to an alarm at 1226 South Congress Boulevard. Upon arrival, Officer Defore observed that the front door glass had been shattered to gain entry into Jewel's Market. There were lottery tickets strewn in the parking lot between the store and the car wash, south of the store. There was no sign of anyone on the premises at that time.

Pictures were taken of the scene and Mr. Redmon was asked to call the police department when he could determine a dollar amount of the loss.\"
No arrests have been made.
