Police: Thieves use sledgehammer to break into Fayetteville convenience store

A group of thieves are accused of using a sledgehammer to break into a Fayetteville convenience store on Friday, Channel 2 Action News reported.

The ExxonMobil store, located on Lanier Avenue East, now has plywood covering up the gaping hole two suspects created, Channel 2 reported. A third suspect waited outside in a getaway car.

Fayetteville police said the suspects ran straight for the cash register, stole money and cigarettes and then all three left, the news station reported.
