A trio of burglars stole alcohol, cigarettes and cash valued at $40,000 during an early-morning break-in at a Pasadena liquor store on Monday, officials said.
A burglary alarm went off about 4:40 a.m., drawing police to A-1 Liquor at Los Robles Avenue and Woodbury Road, Pasadena police Lt. Sean Dawkins said.
The officers discovered the thieves had managed to open the business’ roll-up security door and smash through the glass front door, he said.
An estimated $40,000 worth of merchandise and cash was taken, primarily in the form of alcohol and cigarettes, Dawkins said.
The three burglars left the area in a four-door sedan, he added. Further suspect descriptions were not available.
