The suspects entered the store through the garden center area, St. George Police officer Lona Trombley said. Officers were dispatched to a business alarm at 2:23 a.m. Several alarms were going off inside the store when officers arrived, Trombley said.

“Several items were stolen and the suspects were no longer at the scene,” Trombley said.

Detectives were called to the scene to investigate the burglary. As the case is ongoing, police have not yet released security camera footage of the suspects or provided a description of them.

    Big city crimes all too common in “little” st george now. Poor old kmart can’t catch a break. The company is already in its death throes. I wonder if anyone with the company actually even cares if they get burgled. It’s just a pathetic company–corruption and incompetence at the executive level have run sears/kmart into the ground. I read an article discussing how their intention was to run the company into the ground because the board members/majority shareholders stand to make a fortune when the companies assets are liquidated. Sad sad. Used to really like both sears and kmart.
