Ultimate Stop in Montague was burglarized at approximately 2:30 a.m. on July 26 when cigarettes and a safe deposit box were stolen.

The burglary was reported when an employee arrived in the early morning hours to open the store, located at 10343 State Hwy 59 N., and discovered damage to the building.

Montague County Sheriff Investigator Joey Stewart said entry was made using a crowbar. When officers arrived on the scene, they found the unknown suspect had tampered with the alarm keypad and cut the phone wires. Once inside, cigarettes and a safe deposit box were stolen.

The store did have video surveillance; however, the burglar also took the digital video recorder containing any video that may have identified the suspect.

As of Wednesday afternoon, there were no known suspects, but Stewart reported the department is processing evidence gathered at the crime scene and hope to identify a suspect soon. If you have any information regarding this crime, call the Montague County Sheriff’s office at 894-2871.
