SCHERERVILLE — Police are trying to identify the man accused of burglarizing a frozen yogurt shop on U.S. 41 sometime last week.
Cmdr. Jeffrey Cook said a passerby reported Sweet Frog's front door was shattered about 5:20 a.m., Nov. 25. Officers found the rock used to break the glass lying on the shop floor and loose change behind the store's counter.
Surveillance footage showed the man wearing a light-colored stocking cap, tennis shoes and a dark jacket at the time of the alleged burglary.
Sweet Frog remains closed due to the damage, staff said. It is unknown when it will reopen.
Cook said a tablet is missing from the shop, and the incident remains under investigation.
Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Ernest Nangle at 219-322-5000 or the Schererville Crime Tip Hotline at 219-865-4646.
