BARBOURVILLE, Ky. (WYMT) - Barbourville Police say thieves stole hundreds of dollars from Lee's Food Mart in Knox County overnight.

Police say employees discovered the burglary when they arrived at work at 6:00 Friday morning.

Investigators say the thieves disabled the store's alarm just after midnight and broke-in. Police say the thieves took the cash register drawer money from the office.

There are no arrests yet but they have suspects.

"With the factors involved, the alarm being disarmed, the fact the door was unlocked, it is apparent there is some type of connection to an employee or ex-employee," said Det. Steve Owens.

Anyone with information should call the Barbourville Police Department.
