One man was arrested and a second is wanted for Wednesday morning’s break-in at an East Waterloo Road gas station.
Michael D. Robinson, 42, of Euclid, was arrested on charges of breaking and entering, receiving stolen property, possession of criminal tools and obstructing official business. He was being held in the Summit County Jail.
A second suspect has not been identified.
Officers were called to the Giant Eagle Get-Go at 488 E. Waterloo Road just after 3 a.m. when a security alarm sounded. Police say they noticed the front door had been forced open and more than 70 cartons of cigarettes were missing.
Additional officers in the area searched for potential suspects and eventually stopped a 1989 Chevrolet Caprice near Hammel Street and Palmetto Avenue. Two men inside fled; Robinson was caught after a brief chase.
The cigarettes were found in the back seat of the car, which had been reported stolen.
