CUMMING, Ga. — When a store manager went to open his business up after the Thanksgiving holiday, he found it had been broken into, according to a Forsyth County Sheriff’s incident report.

On Nov. 29, the store manager of R.E. Michel Company, 1015 Union Center Drive, told deputies he arrived for work at about 7:30 a.m.

He said he found the glass window next to the front door shattered.

He cleared the business and saw the cash register had been forced open.

Someone had taken the cash drawer along with $400 in cash.

The manager said the business closed at 5 p.m. Nov. 27 and stayed closed until that morning.

The manager said because of where the suspect entered the building, the motion detectors should have activated the alarm.

The store has no security cameras, but the neighboring store may be able to provide their footage.
