Blackstone Valley

WOONSOCKET, R.I. (WPRI) — Woonsocket Police are investigating a burglary early Saturday morning at BuyCellFix on Main Street.

Police are still searching for the suspect.

According to police, the break-in occurred between midnight and 12:30 a.m. Saturday.

Woonsocket Deputy Chief of Police Michael Lemoine told Eyewitness News the suspect took the cash register. He was in the store for less than one minute.

The suspect is described as a taller, thin male, and was wearing a hoodie that concealed his face.

David Kosciusko and his wife own the shop on Main Street.

At first, they’d heard the store’s front window had been vandalized; when they went to the store to assess the damage, they found the cash register missing.

Kosciusko told Eyewitness News the suspect made off with $1,500.

“We think it’s a customer,” he said. “We are going to give that information to the detective, the recent customers we have had, and see if they fit the profile of the suspect.”

Kosciusko says he is willing to not press charges if the person of interest returns the cash and the cash register.

As of Sunday morning, Woonsocket Police tell us the case is still under investigation.

If you have any information about the robbery, you are asked to contact Woonsocket Deputy Chief Michael Lemoine at (401) 767-8865.
