Three sought in Bee Line Snack Shop burglary

Deputies from the Cole County Sheriff’s Office responded to a burglary at the Bee Line Snack Shop on at around 5:30 a.m. on Monday.

After the store clerk prepared to open the store she took a break in her vehicle, according to the report. She then heard a loud noise of someone trying to break the drivers side window of her car. A subject tried to open the car door and a that point the clerk put the car in reverse, left the lot and called 911.

Deputies believed that three subjects used a rock to break the front door to enter the shop. They took a number of items in less than a minute. The first subject was described as a black male wearing plaid shorts, a dark shirt and a red bandanna over his face. The second subject was male of unknown race, wearing white pants and a white hoody. The third subject was male of unknown race wearing dark pants with a gold hoody.

Both the Cole County Sheriff’s Department and the Jefferson City Police responded to the scene, but the suspects had already left the area. Some subjects were seen fleeing between houses on Charm Ridge, but none were located.

Crimestoppers has also issued a $500 dollar reward for information leading to the arrest of the subjects involved. Call 659-TIPS or go to
