CARRBORO – Nathan Milian, manager for Carr Mill Mall, confirms there was a break-in sometime between 10 p.m. Friday evening and 7:00 a.m. Saturday morning.

“They entered an exterior door to Panzanella and then gained access to the interior of the mall. From there, they broke into The Bead Shop by smashing the front entry door,”  said Lt. Chris Atack of the Carrboro Police Department.

“[The Bead Store] cash register itself was pretty much destroyed. Someone was pretty motivated to get in to it,” Atack said.

He believes the intruder(s) left through Panzanella as well. Atack says an investigator has been assigned for follow-up.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (919) 942-7515.
