From the This week in local crime news: Teen found dead in Gary alley was reported missing by Chicago shelter series

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.
