Pictured is the scene at Cross Creek General Store in Vinton County after an early-morning burglary on Saturday.

The Vinton County Sheriff's Office is investigating an early-morning burglary which occurred Saturday, July 14 at the Cross Creek General Store in Vinton County near Allensville.

According to a Facebook post from Cross Creek General Store, the break-in occurred at 3:15 a.m. Saturday when the store was closed. Entry was forced by breaking the glass in the front door and an ATM (automated teller machine) was stolen. Ironically, the ATM was empty and there was even a sign hanging on it which was marked "EMPTY." A deputy from the sheriff's office responded within nine minutes, but the burglar or burglars were already gone.

Although the ATM was empty, the store incurred damages as the door glass was broken and the floor was damaged when the ATM was removed. No other details are being released at this time.

The Vinton County Sheriff's Office reports a reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the individuals involved in this burglary. Tips will remain anonymous. Call the sheriff's office at 740-596-5242 if you have any information.
