Stevens Point police are investigating a burglary on the city’s east side.

Lt. Jeremy Mueller said officers responded at about 7 a.m. to the Verizon TEAM Wireless store, 5423 Hwy. 10 East, on Aug 4 when a caller reported a shattered glass entry door. The damage was reported by an employee at the neighboring Harbor Freight Tools retail store.

Mid-morning on Thursday, Mueller said police were still collecting evidence and investigating any video surveillance from inside and outside the store.

Mueller said whoever broke into the store stole several display phones. There was cash in a locked back room, he said, but that was not taken. The value of the theft was not immediately available. No one was injured, he said.

Anyone with information on the burglary should contact Lt. Mueller at 715-346-1500, or submit an anonymous tip via the P3 smartphone app.
