Papa John's burglarized; $35 stolen, police say

Officers arrived on scene of the pizzeria, located in the 200 block of Donaghey Avenue, around 7:19 a.m. Police found the back door of the business forced open, and several items on the floor and out of place.

Video surveillance showed a suspect force open a back door, walk toward a till drawer in the manager’s office and pry it open.
