Someone broke into the A2Z Liquidators, 3435 Linden Ave., and stole a cash box that contained approximately $500, according to a Dayton police report.
It happened around 4:45 a.m. Sunday.
Police responded to an alarm at the business and found a rear-door pried open and permanently damaged, according to the report.
The owners reported that the only thing stolen was a cash drawer that was stored in a display case, according to the report.
Police said the owners believe a recent customer may be the culprit because he knew where the cash drawer was located.
Investigators plan to review surveillance video and review sales receipts in an effort to identify the burglar.
