He stated he arrived a short time before the 911 call was placed and said he observed a dark green Dodge Dakota sitting in front of the store that started driving through the lot at a normal speed. He said he believed it was a newspaper delivery person and didn’t give it much thought. Clayton officers found a broken window on the left hand side of the front door. A Clayton officer entered the building while the Englewood officer remained outside. A second Clayton officer located the employee walking back to the store. She was transported by medics to Miami Valley Hospital North for treatment. Inside the store items that had been on a counter were lying on the floor and several packs of Marlboro cigarettes were found on the floor behind the counter. When the store manager arrived surveillance footage revealed that a Ford F-150 pickup truck, possibly maroon in color with a silver or tan stripe on the bottom of the truck, entered the parking lot from Union Road. The truck pulled up to the front doors and stopped. A male got out of the driver’s side and walked to the back of the truck while the passenger walked around the truck and got into the driver’s seat. The original driver walked to the front door with a small sledge hammer and struck the glass once. He used his shoulder to break the glass inward. He entered the store, jumped onto the counter and headed straight for the Marlboro cigarettes and grabbed a few packs. He then walked up to the scratch-off lottery ticket containers. He bear hugged the containers and dislodged three containers. He then walked back through the broken window and threw the containers in the bed of the truck and got into the passenger seat. The truck drove around the gas pumps and exited onto Union Road and headed south. The suspect that entered the store was a white male wearing a maroon or red shirt with a camo shirt underneath, blue jeans, a camo ball cap with an emblem with a black shirt over his face and was wearing gloves.
