Thief Takes Large Stash of Cash From Berrien Liquor Store

Berrien County Sheriff’s Deputies are asking for help in finding the thief who smashed his or her way into a Buchanan Township liquor store and stole a substantial amount of cash from the business. In fact, they have made the week-old crime the Crime of the Week with Crime Stoppers.

Berrien County Sheriff’s Deputy Jamie Laughlin was dispatched to the Red Bud Liquor Store at 3213 W. Front Street in Buchanan Township shortly after the business was opening for the day on Wednesday, June 7th and discovered the break-in and robbery.

Laughlin has shared the surveillance camera photo that accompanies this story on Moody on the Market, and is asking the public for any information regarding the break-in. The only other thing police have told us is that the thief managed to steal a “large amount of U.S. currency,” in the robbery. The exact amount was not specified.

Crime Stoppers wants the person responsible for this breaking and entering and will pay up to $1,000 for information leading to their arrest. Crime Stoppers also pays cash rewards on other felony crimes and the capture of fugitives.
