GREENFIELD — Police are searching for a suspect in the overnight break-in of a Federal Street convenience store.
A passerby noticed that the glass door of Super John’s Market had been smashed in at about 4:30 a.m. Friday, according to police logs.
Officers responded, and began interviewing those nearby. A clerk from CVS, across the street, told police a man was seen running between the Music Store and the market about an hour before the robbery, clad in a gray sweatshirt with the hood up.
Officers called the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office to send a police dog to try to track the suspect’s scent, according to logs.
While they awaited the dog’s arrival, police blocked off Federal Street from Maple Street to CVS, to collect evidence from the roadway, the logs state.
When the police dog arrived, it picked up a scent, but the track ended in the area of School and Leonard streets, according to the log.
Police logs did not say what, if anything, was taken.
At press time, police had not returned calls for comment.
The owner of Super John’s confirmed the break-in, but did not wish to provide any details. The store was able to have the door glass replaced and was open for business Friday.
