RIVERSIDE, Ohio (WDTN) — Police are working to learn if gas station break-ins in two communities are connected.
Riverside Police say four suspects broke into the Valero gas station on Valley Street, near Herman Avenue around 3:45 a.m. Tuesday.
The suspects, described as teenage males, broke a window to get inside the gas station. They stole two cash registers and cigarettes.
Police say the suspects fled in a dark-colored SUV.
