CUMMING, Ga. — Someone broke into a Dollar General Store, 6010 Bethelview Road, and damaged wires and tiles, but did not steal anything, according to a Forsyth County Sheriff’s incident report.

An employee of the store told deputies she arrived at about 5:30 a.m. July 3 to open the store when she noticed the motion lights did not turn on.

The alarm had not been triggered. Instead, the employee said the alarm panel was ripped from the wall.

When deputies arrived, they saw someone had cut the telephone lines and both power boxes were shut off.

Deputies found the alarm panel on the ground and the ceiling tiles moved around.

After reviewing video surveillance, deputies said the power was shut off about 2:25 a.m., and they were unable to view video of the incident.
