The local St. Augustine news desk has learned that Police Officer Walt Makowski responded to 906 Anastasia Boulevard to investigate the burglary of The Music Studio which occurred sometime after closing Friday night.
The owner told police that when she returned to the store Saturday morning, she discovered that someone pried open the back door to the business and entered the building.
The suspect ransacked the office and stole $40 in cash.
Further investigation revealed that the security light above the back door had been broken and the glass window of the door had been shattered.
The suspect apparently pried open the door to gain entry after the double-cylinder deadbolt prevented the burglar from reaching through and opening the door from the inside.
Community Affairs Officer Barbara Clifford of the St. Augustine Police Department reports that evidence was taken from the scene and the investigation is ongoing.
