DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) — A former employee is suspected of breaking into a Dayton store.

Officers were called to the Metro PCS located at 1744 North Gettysburg Avenue around 9:15 a.m. Saturday.

When police arrived, they spoke with the store manager who said the store was broken into overnight. The manager told officers a garage door opener is used to open the metal garage door that covers the front door and front window of the store. The manager said he and another manager as well as a former employee are the only people who have a garage door opener for the store.

The manager told police when he arrived to the store, the garage door over the entrance was open and the power was turned off at the breaker. According to another employee, the store’s security system showed the garage door being opened around 3:50 a.m. and a former employee breaking in. The manager said the employee stopped working there about three weeks ago but refused to return the key and garage door opener.

Three days worth of money was stolen from the cash register totaling at least $7,900.

Dayton Police are still investigating the break-in. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
