Georgetown Police say the Quick Stop has been hit three times in the last ten days; most recently Monday, January 9th.

In the exclusive video, the suspect this morning can be seen smashing in the front door with a rock---triggering the alarm.

Police say just like the first incident on Dec 30th, he suspect ran away before going inside---likely getting spooked by a passing car.

Adding insult to injury for the owner---this is the third time in 10 days this has happened.

"We're as frustrated as he is, I'm sure," explained Lt. Robert Swanigan of the Georgetown Police Department.

Lt Swanigan released surveillance video of Thursday, January 5th in which a suspect again throws a rock into the door---and then goes inside. Police say he may have ripped his jacket on the way in. With the alarm blaring, the video shows the suspect picking and choosing more than $31-hundred dollars in tobacco products from the shelves before taking off. With little to go on as far as the suspect or suspects, police are now asking for your help.

"He is in and out in less than two minutes," explained a visibly frustrated Swanigan. "Hopefully, somebody will recognize this guy from the video---maybe recognize his jacket."

Police are still investigating whether or not these crimes are related and believe any suspects involved are still in the Georgetown area.
