Police were called about 4:25 a.m. for a report of an alarm at the Gateway Gas Mart, 1231 Market St. When officers got there, they found a car rammed into the building.

After the car was towed, police went inside with the owner and discovered a safe and a cash register were missing, reports said. It was estimated $4,000 was taken.

No one was with the car when police arrived. Whoever is responsible also took cigarettes and cigars.

“When I come here, the police call me early in the morning they said something break your store, he said big damage here and then I come here and it’s a big shock,” said store owner Tony Singh.

They damaged the supply to the gas pumps and the owner said it could take months before he is able to reopen.
