AKRON, Ohio - Akron police spent hours trying to figure out if a burglar was still inside an Akron grocery store.
Police were called around 2:30 a.m. Wednesday to the Ellet IGA on Darrow Road for an alarm. Once at the scene, officers noticed a large hole in the ceiling of the store.
Officers surrounded the building and for an hour searched inside the store along with the store's attic and on the roof.
In the attic, they found what they think was an entry point and a flashlight but could not find anyone.
Officers said the store has multiple levels in the attic and it was impossible for them to safely search the entire area.
Around 3:45 a.m, they locked the store and reset the alarm hoping that if the person is still inside the attic they would try and get out, setting off the alarm again.
At 4:45 a.m., officers searched the exterior of the building one more time before leaving the scene.

If you don't feel safe from a tornado in your basement or the lowest level of your home, how about investing in a 10-gauge steel shelter buried seven-feet below ground?
