WATERLOO – Police are investigating a break-in at a closed fireworks store.
The burglary was discovered at Crossroads Fireworks, 2019 Crossroads Blvd., at about 7:45 a.m. Monday, said Capt. David Mohlis with the Waterloo Police Department.
The suspects broke a front window, entered the business and grabbed fireworks before the alarm scared them off. They fled, dropping some along the day, Mohlis said.
“They didn’t hardly get anything, but they broke a perfectly good window out of our door. Our security cameras are being installed today – they were sitting on a table but didn’t get stolen – so if anything like this happens again, we’ll have video,” said Matt Reisetter, who operates the store.
The business opened in the summer, and will resume operation again on Dec. 10 until Jan. 3.
